Warning: Attempting to use U+Exxx "private use" glyphs on a Web Page 
is asking for problems since, as they ARE "private use", there is no 
Glyph to be displayed there unless each user that is trying to 
display the page has a font that has glyphs for those codepoints. 
Usually the Private Use area is used between parties who have agreed 
on th mappings for these codepoints and who have private fonts for 
display purposed (IOW: It is for Word-processing Use not Web Use 
[unless the site is a Private Internal not a Public Site]).
