Strange font style found in Dumpstack.log

I was looking to clean some space on my c: drive with wiztree, it also revealed some hidden files to me in. I opened one named Dumpstack.log which seems to be a normal part of windows, however when i scrolled through this log i saw it was writing to something with a strange name and font style.I dont know if it is safe to reveal the text/code that is written there if its some sort of special code for example l so i wont until it is confirmed safe but it says

Calling ...secondary callback.Return from ..... secondary callback.Writing ..... secondary callback data.Writing ....... secondary callback data done.

Whenever i google the text that is supposed to be in the place of the dots i find absolutely nothing, so i find it kind of strange since no other lines have this font style in them.

Dumpstack.log is a Text file, with data like :

Writing TRIAGEDUMPDATA secondary callback data done.
Calling CRASHDUMP secondary callback.
....

There is no "font style" in a Text file...

Well maybe the corect term would be something else then but theres two symbols in there that look like arrows point upwards, when i copy these into the browser i get these strange boxes with numbers in them as icons or symbols, also the entire text makes no sense as in the words have no meaning in the english language. This could all be normal though i dont know
