Cambria Math font

You'll find below a screenshot from a Word 2010 document, where I typed two 'b's, both with the 26 pt Cambria Math font (both characters have bold). The character on the left was typed using the text editor. The one on the right was obtained inside the Equation Editor.

I believe the first glyph is 0x0A86 and the second is the glyph 0x0888, but I can't understand the criteria for these options. I would also appreciate if somebody could confirm whether the glyphs mentioned above are correct.


In the figure below, you'll see a screen shot of two windows showing the Open Type "name" tables for the "MS Mincho" and the "Cambria Math" MS fonts.

If you consider the platformID = 3 (Windows fonts) on both results, you'll see that the "MS Mincho" font shows correctly, names for the encodingID = 1 (Unicode BMP UCS-2) and 10 (Unicode UCS-4). But the "Cambria Math" font only shows encodingID = 1. It doesn't show the encodingID = 10 names. I know for sure the "Cambria Math" font has both encodings. Is this a bug ?
