# Urxvt not display special characters

## Question

Urxvt not display special characters

greetings have a little problem with font settings, use the default urxvt terminal emulator, but for some reason does not display some special characters, for example

anywhere http://copypastecharacter.com/our-favorite-set are the following characters:

? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? | ? \ [ ] { } ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ~ ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? \$ ? ? ? ? ? @ ? ? ? ? ? ? ?

but so is my Urxvt

his are my settings
