Chrome 37 (Windows 8.1; Android 4.4.2), Safari (iOS 8) not showing some characters [Dreamweaver won't show those characters also, Word only shows when it automatically switch to Cambria Math, Excel shows correct one in Arial]

changing font to Airal Unicode MS (Regular) in HTML or browser settings has no effect.

using HTML entity no effect either

Chrome only automatically uses Deja Vu Serif.

IE only uses cambria math or segoe ui, not dejavu serif

Firefox 32 automatically switch to segoe ui

local test page U+239B etc.
