problem with "standard symbols L" font

I have used OpenOffice with Mandriva 06, to make a booklet on logics. For this, I have used "Standard Symbols L" font.

When I have switched to Kubuntu to use Wifi on my laptop, which was not possible with Mandriva (06 but also 07 and 08 !),I have discovered that the Standard Symbols L font was different from that I had with Mandriva. So, I have rebuilt my partition to have Mandriva 06 and Kubuntu (6.06) with a dual boot.

Before installing Kubuntu 8.04, I would like to know why this difference : I think that a standard font should be the same in all Linux distributions. What is the "correct" symbol font? I want to use OpenOffice 2.4 and, if possible, drop Mandriva 06.

Thanks for your help.
