I'm pretty sure this is happening because the stylesheet specifies
something non-Code2000, and since Times or whatever has things at those
codepoints, the (r) and such win, while where it's silent, the browser
falls back on Code2000. It worked on your qapla page because you have
an explicit fontface=code2000 there.

(Ah, so why didn't I fix it? Mainly because I only just figured it out.)
