The basic problem is that the text-drawing routine used (imagestring()) only
supports 8-bit fonts.

Unicode strings can be drawn with imagestringttf(), but a font file would need
to be provided with sufficient coverage for whatever language(s) might be
selected.

Best fix is probably to replace the server-side GD drawing with client-side
drawing -- let the browser deal with the text -- or export to SVG and then run
through the standard SVG transforms, letting whatever font configuration has
been set up for SVG still happen there.
