    You want to read carefully section 2.2 of the Unicode standard, and in
    particular the "characters, not glyphs" subsection, and look at figure
    2.4 (see <>).

    The short answer is that in general, it takes work to go from characters
    to glyphs and apparently iText does not do all the necessary work.
