But if you manually switch the encoding to utf-8, it ought to
reappear with the right font. For example, although Arial does not
have the character, Gentium does. However, I've started noticing
problems with displaying some characters - IPA length and now
subscripts don't appear with IE but do appear in the character map
for the font. Weird! I had to confirm I was receiving the
character by cutting and pasting to a UTF-16 file and then doing a
hex dump.
