Topic: Unicode on Mac

I wonder how you set up VS Code on Mac to see unicode unbroken.
Several unicode symbols look broken on my Mac. For example, the multiset cons notation appears as a box.
infixr ` ::ₘ `:67 := multiset.cons
It also appears broken on Mathlib HTML document on Safari, too.

I use "SF Mono" font on VS Code and Safari is using the system default font. But, changing font setting doesn't seem to help.

I'm using Source Code Variable and DejaVu Sans Mono from the list here and things seem to be OK: https://github.com/leanprover/vscode-lean#other-potentially-helpful-settings

Unicode inspector tells me the box is supposed be a subscript "m".
BTW, subscript "v" (\_v in VS code) works for me.
Duckki Oe (Dec 03 2020 at 20:23):
Thank, Bryan. I'll try that.

In Firefox and Chrome I also chose Deja Vu Sans Mono as the default monospace font; you might have to make a similar change in Safari.

Simply installing Deja Vu Sans Mono fixed the problem on VS code and Chrome. Thanks, @Bryan Gin-ge Chen
Safari is still refusing to use it, though :(
