AFAIK, all those characters are already included in the default 
character map (at least for Western systems), so I tend to think you 
don't need the FONT directive just for these specific characters.

You might still want to change the keyboard layout, but you don't 
need the FONT directive for this.

If you still want to use FONT with Syslinux 5.xx, I would suggest 
testing your cfg file without [vesa]menu.c32. If the specific font is 
displayed correctly under CLI, then that behavior might indicate that 
perhaps the conflict is related to [vesa]menu.c32. Whichever the 
result of such test, feedback would be helpful.
