The Okina character, HTML entity &#699;, seems to turn into another character entirely when emboldened (<b>, <strong>, font-weight:bold;). It looks like the character it turns in to is the standard grave accent (`).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a blank HTML file
2. Put in &#699;<b>&#699;</b>
3. Save file
4. Open file in Mozilla Firefox
5. Observe how the emboldened character is facing a different direction, zoom in or change font size to observe more closely
Actual Results:  
Okina (&#699;) character not the okina (&#699;) character when emboldened.

Expected Results:  
Shown the emboldened version of the okina (&#699;) character.

Change can only be seen with sans-serif web safe fonts, issue not present when font is Arial Unicode MS or Lucida Sans Unicode. Checked in other browsers, issue not present in Safari or Internet Explorer 6 or 7.
