Yes . I read mail at the console with mutt , and the K in your signature
is rendered variously as:

ISO-8859-1  default font  ??
UTF-8      default font  block
UTF-8      LatArCyrHeb-16  k

You seem pretty knowledgeable about fonts. I attempted to edit the
LatArCyrHeb-16 to replace  one of the gylphs with the missing lynx
arrows and failed. After I try again, I'll frame the questions on the 
chat list as I don't want to hijack this thread and font-editing is 
probably OT for lfs-support.
