Comment (by ajmas):

 From what I can see it is possible to change the font for the
 conversations, via:

    Preferences -> Conversations -> Conversation Font

 I have changed mine to a font that supports the complete unicode range.

 The problem is that the default font is not a unicode complete font and
 there is also no way to change the font for the 'Buddy List', so I am just
 getting the missing characters boxes. Using one of the standard Windows XP
 fonts, that is Unicode complete IMHO would be the best approach. Mixing
 and matching fonts that support different ranges is more complicated.

 This observation is from using Pidgin 2.3.1 on Windows XP.
