I'm late to this conversation but opened the html file below in:
1. Safari - boxes
2. IE 8 - boxes
3. Opera 9.x and 10 alpha - boxes
4. Chrome - boxes
5. Firefox - characters
6. OpenOffice - boxes
I would have to say Firefox is the clear winner in this case. Something is
definately better than nothing... and I hate Firefox.
P.S. Long live Opera.
