Hardly. Those are mathemtical symbols and *not* for text at all.
Also it's no way "Fraktur" and the only two fraktur additions in unicode are u+017f and u+2e17 (special german fraktur letters/symbols that are not in use in latin, u+017f is a "soft" "s".

It will look like shit (or rather an empty box) if the client font has no representation for those characters.
If you want a beautiful look, install a font that suits you, eg. check www.dafont.com (or a thousand other font collections)
> and since all over the internet using the Unicode
 see eg. http://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=fraktur.de for examples of fraktur fonts
