The title above is rendered incorrectly in Ubuntu 12.04 as:

switched glyphs

The unicode title identifications are correct for the codes but the symbols are switched. EOT ␄ is the same as control-D but unfortunately the wrong symbol is used. (likewise ENQ ␅ control-E)

AU Favicon AskUbuntu:

CuriosWikipedia Favicon - interesting asides:

          SU Favicon SuperUser:

Enquiry symbol

Enquiry symbol

End of Transmission symbol

End of Transmission symbol

Also the u+240e glyph is wrong for Shift Out, SO, ^N, u+000e

enter image description here

Can these be easily fixed?

Report it as a bug on the Ubuntu Font. –  maco Apr 10 '13 at 16:17

This has been fixed in more recent versions of Ubuntu, and was reported in this bug: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fonts-freefont/+bug/1070669

I doubt it's severe enough to be considered for a "Stable Release Update", so you'll probably just have to live with it until you can upgrade: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/StableReleaseUpdates
