fwiw, it's true that, currently, the test at [1] does what Unicode 
suggests by default, rather than what the CSS spec says. I'm just want 
to be sure before i change it.

I'm personally inclined agree with John and Jonathan, that the CSS spec 
is right. I assume that these characters are used mainly as symbols, 
rather than to form  words.  I just don't feel i'm sufficiently aware of 
all the possible use cases to be sure.
