The case is a bit complicated, local customisation is involved into it.

My mode-line displays the current date. In a local copy of calendar.el =20=

calendar-month-name-array and calendar-month-abbrev-array (and also =20
calendar-day-name-array and calendar-day-abbrev-array) are changed to =20=

contain German names and their abbreviations (calendar-abbrev-length =20
is 3 for month names and must be 2 for day names). This month's name =20
is "M=C3=A4rz" or "M=C3=A4r" abbreviated. The *calendar* buffer's =
mode-line =20
contains the string "M=C3=A4r" with a visibly smaller glyph from some =
other =20
font used for the "=C3=A4". This happens similarly for the buffers to =20=

display the time of sunrise and sundown in this month and that for the =20=

fancy diary entries. The latter and the *temp* buffer (with today's =20
dates) display the "=C3=A4" in a different font:

M ->     xft:-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal-normal-normal-Sans-10-*-*-*-=20=

m-60-iso10646-1 (#x2F)
=C3=A4 ->    character: a (97, #o141, #x61)
preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
        code point: 0x61
            syntax: w 	which means: word
          category: .:Base, a:ASCII, l:Latin, r:Roman
       buffer code: #x61
         file code: #x61 (encoded by coding system utf-8-hfs)
           display: composed to form "=C3=A4" (see below)

Composed with the following character(s) "=CC=88" using this font:
by these glyphs:
   [0 1 97 68 5 0 5 5 0 nil]
   [0 1 776 714 0 -4 0 7 -5 [-1 -1 0]]

Character code properties: customize what to show
   general-category: Ll (Letter, Lowercase)
