Engineering Font 3 will not properly display some of the special symbols

I am using the default font.rsc file, font 3 (ENGINEERING). 

I am interested in displaying the Centerline Symbol, which is available in the Symbols dialog box. when I insert the character, it appears as the centerline symbol in my text editor - work processor. However, when I place the symbol on the Microstation view, it displays an asterisk (*), and not the Centelrine Symbol.

Any ideas why this would happen?
