Ok. Are you sure that your applied font has the necessary glyphs to show the math symbols?

You could use Peter Kahrel's script missing_glyphs.jsx to list all the Unicode code points of all your missing glyphs:

Hi @kanagakumar, it would be great if you could post a sample page of XML (not the whole thing) and maybe an indesign document with the XML linked? So we can see what's going on. Are you using scripts in your workflow for this?

Hi @kanagakumar, I'm not an expert on unicode, but the first thing I'd try is setting the text in a Maths font. See this post for some free maths font ideas. If that doesn't solve your problem, it might help to post a sample of your XML.
