Symbols are not valid in HTML without ASCII formatting. This isn't a Joomla bug, its a HTML thing.

Use these

Not all of the characters you listed need to use the ascii code but some may do, the problem is that they are not valid in HTML. If your using other CMS's then they are converting those on the fly to Ascii or those pages will be failing validation on W3C.

I've just added all the characters you've mentioned to a Joomla 3 title tag and they show up without a problem. Do you perhaps speak of the URL alias?
