None of those are working for me but only your approximately is out?

Yes; both ≈ and ∞.

Character is who you are when no one is looking.

Now I can see all of those, including approximately.

The approximately sign wasn't showing for me before likely because I was using my phone. On my computer it works fine.

What's off?

May I post my explanation?

The Useful symbols, on or off inside a hide? Yes, post your explanation.

I saw

Tried it in FF, chrome and opera.

In HTML source code, if you just put an unicode character that is how it renders. To render it correctly it should be put like this � in the source code.

The parser has a bug, it is not parsing the things inside the hide tag.

This should not render

but this will:

P.S.: No, it is not working

Hmm, but I have shown some light in where to start debugging.

Any reason why it is working in ShivamS' browser?

I think because chrome follows Google and not the prescribed standards. The developers of Chrome have realised that representing unicode characters as HTML codes should actually be needless.

gAr tried it in chrome and it didn't work.

Edit: It doesn't work in my browser now either. I am seeing the same three characters you all are.
