It's always going to take some time before newly introduced characters are
supported in fonts - and much longer before you can be sure people viewing your
pages have the latest version of the font.
Meanwhile, in normal size text something like:
<span style="font-size = xxsmall"> </span>
should give you a thin non breaking space.
