Thank you, looks good, but doesn't work for me:

! Missing number, treated as zero.
<to be read again>
<argument> S
\symbolicsizedfont ...ontsize #1\scaledfontsize #2
\font \the...
\getscaledglyph ...->{\symbolicscaledfont {#1}{#2}
{#3}\char ...
l.21 \getscaledglyph{Symbola}{3.0}{A}

"{A}" was only a test, since it didn't work with \utfchar either, same  
Looks like \getscaledglyph doesn't take my font definition?
