Support - (fb2k) / Question about $char()

I tried to insert some characters in the title formating from FontAwesome
I use Segoe UI in the interface, FontAwesome is in the system font fallback in wine to Segoe UI and the characters show mostly just fine, but there is some that doesn't display.

This works


but this one doesn't


I noticed that happened with all characters with a number of  6 digits.

How can I insert these types of characters?

I'm on Linux, running foobar2000 through wine, so it could be a bug or limitation of wine. Will be useful to know if it works on Windows.

That was it, thank you!  BTW, on my install of 0710 the option to "Suppress mirror image" was un-checked by default.

Edit:  the reversed gradient color bars with Prism 1 issue is indeed fixed with github release 0720-alpha 1, great.  Just installed it on top of 0710 and so far all is well.

@shadowking, I do not use -x6, because it significantly increases the encoding time, and -h, because it requires more resources for decoding. Therefore, my attempts to improve the quality look like this: -b3x4, -b4x4, -b5x4, -b6x4, -b7x4. With -b6x4, there is a shadow of hiss, but still a noticeable shadow, which can be suppressed by adding -s.3 or -s.5. But what is -s really, why it's not there by default, what are the downsides? So only with -b7x4 I can breathe a sigh of relief.

But at this point WavPack loses its advantages in the lossy 44 kHz 16 bit segment (except for correction files feature) over FSLAC -3 (and even Vorbis -q 8, I believe). Alas, @C.R.Helmrich, its author, is still too lazy to bring this project to a brilliant finale with the implementation of 24-bit support and taking into account other shortcomings.

No ... IETF doesn't write mail server software, though they specify the standards for e-mail.
(Oh my how many mail servers violate those!)
