Actual results:

Many HTML character entity references render as black boxes.

The omissions appear quite random.
See attached screenshot where
♭
♯
render fine, but
♮ ♮
does not.



Expected results:

I would expect more entities to be implemented, on par with desktop firefox.

E.g.
⨯
in addition to ✗ (which renders fine)
