Special Characters display differently on different computers

    Special character is displayed differently on 2 computers with the
    same browser version (Internet Explorer 6.0).

    String.fromCharCode(9425) is displayed:

    - a letter b with a circle around it.
    - a square <= this is the problem

    I have compared every option in Internet Explorer and still can't
    figure out why the 2nd computer is always displaying a square.

    Any help is much appreciated!

    It sounds like the issue is the fonts installed on the machine. A
    square/rectangle is the default glyph displayed when the font doesn't
    have access to the right characters.
