That, now that you mention it, could also effect this as I see it, my 
default kmail message body font is hack 14 in deference to the age of my 
eyes.

My system default font is I believe utf-8. That is not a kmail settable 
option. But if I uncheck the "use custom fonts", it is still two pair of 
character outlines. So to what family of fonts do these characters 
belong?
