Hi Neil,

At work, my e-mail is automatically downloaded to Thunderbird and comes off the server. At home it is automatically downloaded but stays on the server. So I checked the characters here at home tonight in both Firefox and Chrome. Here is what I have: (I've enlarged them for clarity.)

Characters Firefox

Chrome Browser
Characters Chrome Browser

I have a standard US version of Ubuntu 13.10 with Unity. Firefox and Thunderbird come with it, and are always updated to the current versions. Chrome is always the current release, and it is kept updated. I download it from Google. I always delete completely the LibreOffice version from Ubuntu, and install the version (presently from The Document Foundation. Hopefully the images I put in this e-mail will show up in your e-mail. I've not added any extra fonts or anything to the system or LibreOffice.

Your browser probably has full support for CJK characters in the basic
multilingual plane. I'm curious what font LO uses to display these 4 chars,
as I am gradually shifting to Linux platform as a beginner.

"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")
