    And for Postscript fonts systems often take the bullet character in the
    font as the "missing glyph" symbol.

    However printers are very erratic in what they do.

    Whether a character like ASCII 0x01 (probably in a data file in error or
    by mistransliteration) will be rendered by a printer as a missing glyph
    symbol or space seems to depend on which printer driver is used and
    often on settings within that driver.
