Symbols don't show up as symbols

The square root character, pi, summation all show up as correct symbols in IE8 but not Firefox 3.6.9

Re: Symbols don't show up as symbols

The symbol font doesn't work in Firefox. Websites need to use Unicode representation of such symbols and not 8 bit fonts that map on the main ASCII set like the symbol font.
