Is it possible to set a font for a glyph without adding markup around each occurrence of the glyph? e.g. my current font does not support angle bracket (〈 〉).

  • Do you want to use the angle bracket within math mode? \langle \rangle?

  • @Sigur No, in text mode. In math mode it works correctly using unicode-math Mar 23, 2014 at 13:36

You can use the newunicodechar package. (Also works with xelatex)

\pagestyle{empty}% for cropping
Here are angle〈 〉brackets.

$Here are angle〈 〉brackets.$

  • This is one of the cases where \ensuremath can be useful.
