Tell me a story

My Windows laptop, Progress, has been told by Microsoft that it wants to fix the Bookshelf Symbol 7 font to "remove unacceptable characters."

The characters, presumably, are a pair of swastikas. The other glyphs in this strange little font include a Star of David, esoteric accented characters (e.g. capitalized consonants with accents), hearts and spades (but not clubs or diamonds), and eight Chinese characters.

I bet there's a story here....
