Chiense character 玲 (Ling3) not rendering in "BiauKai" font

I've got the following code:

text(size = ChineseFontSize,
font = "BiauKai",
halign = "center",
valign = "center",
"玲");      // Líng

which won't render in the macOS (Monteray) BiauKai font.  The awful "Font
Book" application lists it as having a single style "Regular" - does that
have to be specified somehow in OpenScad for it to work?

I don't know which font is on macOS, the one downloaded
from https://en.maisfontes.com/biaukai.font looks fine
on Linux.

Does it show up in the font list on your system?

ciao,
Torsten.
