I don't know. I never had a problem – because I do not write so much  
maths! My advice is to try out whether free Fourier does *not*  
provide some symbol.

Could be these are stale ads from the time when Mac OS X did not  
exist. Could be the problem is with encodings! The Adobe standard  
encoding of text fonts could be easily understood by Mac OS X, but  
what is with the arbitrary encodings of TeX symbolic fonts or those  
"expert encoding fonts?" Try to double-click a TeX symbolic or math  
font to integrate it into the system (~/Library/Fonts). You could  
also use one of the free ones from Fourier. Then try to set some math  
with this font in Pages!

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
