Hi there, 

Unfortunately JQL doesn't understand that kind of character. The only ones that it understands are the ones listed here. And the reason behind that is because JQL uses those kind of symbols as operator references.

Hope this clarifies a bit. smile

Could you shoume URL for 'here' and 'operator references' please.  I can not click them.
