No, the exact rendering of the predefined symbolic styles is
explicitly left undefined, with browsers being given a choice of using
a particular character (with several suggestions given, but nothing
required), or a browser-generated image that looks similar to the
intended rendering. Note the paragraph immediately following the
stylesheet in the predefined symbolic section.

So, everyone's perfectly compliant so far.
