I've "tediously" deleted every font that was not found on my reference VM and the problem persists in Firefox.

Unfortunately, the Chrome approach using that plugin doesn't work either. From its Chrome-store description: Chrome will use the font settings controlled by this extension when BOTH of the following are true: 1) The web page has declared the language of the content (e.g., by using the HTML lang attribute); and 2) The web page has not specified a font to use.

Sigh. I had wondered at the possibility of a font lying about supporting these glyphs.

The fonts in question are strictly part of Unicode. The setting for non-Unicode doesn't come into play here. Anyway nobody has "Egyptian Hieroglyphics" as their computer language.

That page basically tells you to install fonts. I have already done that.

@brownchild you might have better luck asking for further help on serverfault.

@tchrist yes, so far this does seem limited to SMP scripts. But the SMP scripts do partially work.

@BhathiyaPerera This is not about code. This is about automatic font substitution. When I load this SU question on my workstation, I see little boxes where I should see hieroglyphs. When I load this same page on my VM in the same browser, I see hieroglyphs. But I can tell that the font is installed on my workstation because I can use Firebug to modify this page's DOM and set the font-family; then the font appears.

@BhathiyaPerera I am seeing the same issue with, eg, the Carian script. On my local machine the text doesn't appear unless I edit page and inject the font family. On my VM, in Firefox, it works fine.
