Bug du Jour: When is a symbol not a symbol?

I have some OEM code which is telling me that a particular font that I should use is Symbol.

When I create a display trusting this report, I get something more along the lines of Homer's Odyssey in the original Greek.

Turns out that when they say "Symbol" what they really mean is ITC Symbol Medium, which is something different entirely.

Mental note: no matter how much you know or think you know about typography, you can't know enough.
