Yes, these Unicode slots (which map to the identical positions in ISOLatin1 
and WindowsANSI) are mapped to characters in our Math1 font to guarantee 
their availability (and consistent glyphs) on all platforms and under all 
encodings.  You can change these mappings by editing the file...

<install directory>\SystemFiles\FrontEnd\TextResources\UnicodeFontMapping.tr

and changing the following lines...

from
0x00AC          N               2               0xd8            # \[Not]
to
0x00AC          N               1               0xac            # \[Not]


from
0x00B7          N               2               0xd7            # \[CenterDot]
to
0x00B7          N               1               0xb7            # \[CenterDot]

and from
0x00B1          N               2               0xb1            # \[PlusMinus]
to
0x00B1          N               1               0xb1            # \[PlusMinus]

This will reset the mappings of these characters from the Math1 font back 
into the "base font", which is to say the font which you explicitly set (in 
this case, DB Thai Text).  Note that the behaviour you describe isn't a 
bug, and this does not constitute a bug fix.  The really correct way to do 
this would be to add appropriate mappings from unicode into your 
font.  But, since I don't know how your font is encoded, and this 
particular workaround is fairly easy to implement, I offer it for your use.
