For control characters (category Cc) gecko never attempts to draw a glyph from the font; it draws these (if the pref to make them visible is enabled) with the same "hexbox" code it uses as a last-resort rendering for printable characters that are not supported by any available font: a simple box with the character code in tiny hexadecimal digits inside.
