Description

19 years ago
This problem has been seperated from bug 6585. It concerns about visual feedback 
to the end user regarding missing glyphs on a page.

Comments from bug 6585 :

> How can you hover over something that's not
> there at all?  And how would the

When a glyph can't be found, the REPLACEMENT CHARACTER U+FFFD should be 
displayed. When hovering over this, the name of the missing glyph can be shown 
as a tooltip. Hope this makes things clearer.

U+FFFD is not available in many fonts. We currently draw the question mark '?'
as a last resort. We don't do the tooltip yet. Changing Summary to include the
word "tooltip". Markin Future.

for 2 years. And they are still there. Just close them as won't fix to clean up.

Now, missing glyphs are drawn as boxes with their Unicode code point (bug 372629). I think that nothing to do in this bug.
