Default Not an encoding problem? Then what?

I enjoy reading Joe Clark’s blog, which often touches on accessibility, typography, and other topics of interest. Among other things, his blog is an interesting example of a WordPress site.

This week (beginning September 12, 2007) he is reporting live from the annual ATypI meeting in the University of Reading in Brighton, England. I wanted to read an article about a presentation from Fontlab’s Ted Harrison and Yuri Yarmola regarding Flash Photofonts, and am finding weird type substitutions in some of the titles — but only in Safari and not in Firefox. [See attachment for an example.]

I saw another example of this a week or so ago, and e-mailed Joe C, saying that I thought he was having an encoding problem. He e-mailed back that he didn’t think so.

He’s a lot smarter than I am about this stuff, so I will take him at his word, but then what is the problem? And does anyone else see anything like this on the linked page? (I doubt you will see it in Firefox, but how about other browsers?)
