User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; da-DK; rv:1.9.1b4) Gecko/20090427 Fedora/3.5-0.20.beta4.fc11 Firefox/3.5b4

An apostrophe formated with the Chess Alpha 2 font looks correct in 12pt, but when scaled to 16pt it loses the font.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Download and install the font from http://www.enpassant.dk/chess/fonteng.htm
2. Write a html file with just <span style='font-family:"Chess Alpha 2"'>&apos;</span>
3. Open it with firefox
4. Press Ctrl++ a few times
Actual Results:  
After some upscaling the white box that is the Chess Alpha 2 interpretation of the apostrophe disappears and you see a standard apostrophe.

Expected Results:  
The box should scale regularly just like any other character in the font (and other fonts)

If Ctrl++ doesn't work, you can also add font-size:16pt to the style attribute
For all other characters this is not a problem.
It also seems like the same bug appears in opera and konqueror.
