I used Firefox to post, and yes, it replaced one of the characters for
me.  I don't know how to figure out what the encoding is for the
character Emacs is correctly displaying, but the character U+4F60 does
not display correctly in my version of Emacs.  Instead, it shows up as
the empty square.  There's another version of the same character that
does show up correctly in Emacs, but unfortunately it's not the one
used elsewhere.
