This is an ePublisher issue. I have run into it. You can search characters on
the ePublisher support page:
"Wingdings characters present a particular challenge when working with
HTML-based content. Since Wingdings (as well as a few other "symbol" fonts)
conflicts with the Unicode character map, many browsers simply don't support
it. Internet Explorer skirts the issue and displays these characters correctly."
A solution is to use the character map to do a translation from one character
"To modify the ePublisher character map, you'll need to perform a simple
overide of a file called 'mapentrysets.xml', which is located by default in the
ePublisher Pro installation directory:
