Mark,

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 another.

"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:
ePublisher Pro\Formats\Shared\html

For information on performing target overrides, please see their online 
knowledge base article here:
