I used characters that should display differently. Some punctuation and
some like (I think it is) the bone character.

However, feel free to suggest a list of characters that should be
distinctive and I'll post a page with them that we can all review
whether there are differences or not on various platforms, browsers,

I agree for many characters there should be no differences.
