IE shows them as boxes, Netscape as questionmarks and (interesting) Firefox shows a box with a code inside;

With Firefox I always get the code inside the box. I checked three fonts with Firefox and got the same display. With IE I got a empty box of a different shape.

Mac OS X.5.8, Firefox 3.5.5; I see boxes with the Unicode hex values inside.

That’s a clever feature Firefox added: even if your computer can’t display a character, you can (with good eyesight) read the hex code and find out what it’s supposed to be.

Not that I know of.  I never did anything to install it but one never knows what goodies are hidden away in a Linux distro.  Is there some way I can tell?

I’ve got no clue about how to check fonts in Linux. But I bet it is there--or another font that supports a wider range of Unicode than is normally the case.

Since you have OpenOffice installed, start the application and look in the fonts pulldown in the toolbar.

Firefox 3.5.5 shows:

Post 1: All runes perfect save the penultimate.

Post 2: All runes perfect save the fifth from last.

Post 3: All runes perfect.

I don’t see any fonts identified as Junicode.  I do have a bunch that start with ae_
