Wendell, I'm guessing its a missing glyph issue in the fonts used 
by the xsl-fo processor.

Suggest try another character as a substitution, see if that
works. I would have thought - would be available in most fonts,
less sure why - is not being used, unless you're right and its not
being declared correctly?

regards DaveP.
