This should give the correct character:

pdf("~/tmp/test_per_mille.pdf", paper = "a4", family = "URWBookman")
plot(1:10, ylab = "\u2030")

dev.off()

But all I get here is a period or a dot-like symbol.

I've tried this in R 2.4.0 alpha [4] and R 2.5.0 to be [4] as my self-compiled R 2.3.1-patched dies when plotting Unicode characters (fixed in 2.4.0 alpha and above [3])

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this working?

**TIA,

[2] like a "%" but with 2 circles at the bottom not one, see
