    IE5 settings:
            face: Times New Roman
            size: "medium"

    CSS settings (collapsed from several classes):
            margin:0px 0px 0px 0px;
            padding:12px 22px 12px 22px;

    I guess that point size is 12 pt (= 10 pt x 120%). But this still
    happens with other text size browser settings and with varying CSS
    declarations and HTML tagging.

    After deselection, the rendering of U+2011 stays OK but it reverts to a
    square when the page is refreshed.

    In the page from which I sent the screen shots, U+2011 is rendered in 7
    bits as a XML entity: &#8209;
