I think that you are correct in saying that mathematical fonts are missing.

What seems to be happening is that there is a character code for a
mathematical symbol. Your program that displays your drawing in WMF is able
to draw the character symbol based on that character code.

So your WMF program is using a mathematical character set together with your
WMF drawing.

For an unknown reason, this mathematical character set is not included with
the convered SVG. So the SVG viewer uses a character set it does have. This
character set contains different symbols like floppy discs.

So what you need to do is get the mathematical character set defined within
your SVG document. Batik provides a tool to convert TrueType fonts to SVG.
If your mathematical character set is TrueType then this solution could

Your English is fine.
