100% the font. Install the unifont.

For Tilesathome there was a discussion to use SVG-Fonts. For me this 
sounds like a good idea as with distributed rendering it would guarantee 
all using the same font.

Your rendering looks like mapnik, so just having a font with the glyphs 
is all you need, could be any you like.
