    Yes, the newspaper page is fine, but the flickr site (rendered by
    Firefox) shows clearly a different font - so the right one has no
    glyph at that place whatsoever (which is no wonder, as I use XP but
    have several additional fonts installed).

    What makes me wonder is: which font has such a misplaced glyph at that
    It's not only one, as my Thunderbird shows also the T with vertical
    stem below, but with the same monospaced courier new font as the rest
    of the text.
    I would have expected to see a white box for missing glyph.
