    I used characters that should display differently. Some punctuation and
    some like (I think it is) the bone character.

    However, feel free to suggest a list of characters that should be
    distinctive and I'll post a page with them that we can all review
    whether there are differences or not on various platforms, browsers,

    I agree for many characters there should be no differences.
