with Linux at least, Writer sometimes "helps" too much by silently
substituting fonts for you and doesn't always make good choices - leading
to it looking like one font (which you know has the character you want) is
in use, when it really isn't.

Hi, sadly (and interestingly) I feel like my Writer's "helping" too little
by not accepting my font settings at all. Take the "fork and knife"
character (U+1F374) as an example again. Following your advice, I tried
three things.1. changing font settings in Format→Character2. changing font
settings for the "Default" style which is in use3. changing language
settings to "None" as this character is a sign, not part of any writing
system.But I still get square ...

"雷聲 靐䨻": if you can see four Chinese characters instead of blobs or question marks than your 
browser/OS has a good support for Unicode and CJK characters! (P.S. the four chracters put together 
means "loud thunder")
