The highlighted symbol means "proportional to". You are correct in thinking it should be ##\mu##. Some typesetter must have screwed up.

If TeX is not available and Greek letters are difficult to type people sometimes use "u" instead (uF = ##\mathrm{\mu F}##). The "proportional to" (\propto, ##\propto##) is just the wrong symbol.
