Dingbats font & OO Equation editor questions

Dingbats first.

I have ticks and crosses in OOCalc which uses 3 and 5 in the Dingbats
font. If I import the file created in OOCalc into OOWriter, the
character "5" (a cross in dingbats) shows fine, but the "3" (a tick)
gives an empty square.

If the font is changed to zapf dingbats, I get the number 3 and 5
showing and not a tick or cross (which I see with dingbats).

Is there any reason for this happening or is it something I need to
report into bugzilla?

Does anyone know if there is a list anywhere of the likes of specialist
maths symbols for the equation editor? I have a list for greek
characters, but need the likes of the "L" used for polar co-ordinates.
