If your Opera does not render the Browser test page correctly click on Tools (in the top menu), then on Preferences, then on the Advanced tab, and finally on "Fonts" in Things are not working as expected, they've regressed. At the very least, that bug has a lot of irrelevant noise, and is in the wrong component.

The only time the page will use Junicode for this wingdings seems to validate OK using the w3c css validator.
The fact that we internally have to deal with fonts that don't actually use Unicode as their character set is our problem, and we shouldn't just be punting on it.

We now propagate enough information to gfx that it knows where font-family information is coming from. Webdings Character Codes Sure, the Unicode behaviour is completely logical: if the font doesn't have this Chinese glyph, find a font that does. For instance, U+0021 is the Unicode representation of the exclamation point.
Reload to refresh your session. also, a LOT of chinese fonts only have the most frequent characters as glyphs, for the sheer number of them (almost 21 thousand chinese characters in the bmp alone), so failure Btw, what"s really broken here is Wing-/Webdings, not any of the other parts of the machinery.

Wingdings is not standard (what a surprise coming from Microsoft) because not mapped to Unicode, and so should never be used on a website. We love comments and suggestions! That's what we're talking about. it is like, you didn't have unicode back when that was done, and a font could only render a single codepage, and maybe mappings to parts of other code pages (which

Contributor kremalicious commented Jun 6, 2012 The latest Opera Mini 7 doesn't support @font-face, see When can I use or Opera's product specs.
There really aren't many symbol fonts out there. Why doesn't it work in Firefox? The test page in question has a "latin lowercase a" character, and we end up producing a glyph for a quite different character. But here's the rub: None of the eleven core fonts have a 100% complete list of IPA characters.
