the answer is that you can install the fonts
or from Wolfram on any computer.

And a publisher the publishes scientific texts
will use TeX and *not* Word and the glyph for 
depend on the document fonts but it will an arrow.

| On page ten of the Mathematica v5.2 Tutorial the

single character, because the

right arrow.

Is that the answer for
