Just so I can make a decision concerning a livesite bug that we have had reported regarding showing the box for the control character, does Blink/Webkit/Gecko plan to implement this? We currently haven't fully implemented this but fell into it due to the font selected, but it does bring up the issue that a user will think that a UA is broken if one UA is showing boxes while others are not. Interestingly, Gecko removed this from their implementation due to this very problem[1].

Thanks in advance,
Greg
