This is a bit vague description. Any code?

There is a known bug in PHP's GD library with OpenType fonts which 
renders utf-8 characters incorrectly. With one of my OpenType fonts the 
(R) symbol is displayed as fi-ligature and the TM symbol is displayed as 
a [X].

With TrueType and Type1 fonts the symbols, diacriticals, etc. are 
displayed correctly. As far as I could determine this has to do with the 
JIS-mapped Japanese Font Support. Unfortunately there isn't a workaround.
