Not really a browser bug. It is a bug in the FONT. Some of the font
basically claim they are design for a certain encoding which 0x00-0x7F
represent ASCII while the glyph in that font in those position have
shape in non ASCII. If font author *lie* to browser, in the information
which encoded in the font, there are no thing the browser (or browser
developer) can do. wrote:
