whereas xterm fails on some chars I want to use. E.g.:

ƒ ("function" symbol) displays fine in both xterm and xfce4-terminal


❴ and ❵ (mathematical braces) only displays in xfce term, and not
xterm for a reason I have not been able to figure out.

Yeah, I've finally given up on xterm when it comes to unicode handling. I think it might come down to substituting characters that don't appear in the selected font, but whatever it is, other terminal emulators just work.
