The new MQL4 introduced a function named ShortToString which is supposed to convert a Unicode character code to the equivalent character, but when I use it all I see for the most part is a question mark instead of the character.

If I use a label set to use the Arial font, I should get the character for "1/3" (the HEX value is 2153):


All I get is: ?

Interestingly, if I use an ASCII code it works fine.

Does anyone know if this is by design, or is Unicode not yet fully supported by MT4 ?
