While trying to use Office 365 with Vivaldi (1.14.1077.50) and Firefox (58.0.2), the majority of bullet points render as boxes. When I hover over the incorrectly rendered bullet points, a tooltip/hint text pops up that says something like "Wingdings 0x00a7" or "Symbol 0x00e0". I assume this is because Fedora doesn't come with the Wingdings or Symbol fonts.

Is there a way to install these fonts, or at least to get something besides a box to render?

Edit: installing the "wine-wingdings-fonts" and "wine-wingdings-fonts-system" gets some wingdings to display. Wingdings 0x00fc displays a check mark, while Wingdings 0x00fb is still a box. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to which bullets render correctly and which ones render incorrectly. Installing the "wine-symbol-fonts" package doesn't display any characters from the Symbol font.

try running winetricks and tell it to install all fonts, after you select the wine prefix and click install a font, you should see the option that says install all fonts.
