# iPad app can't display ⟨⟩ brackets

These brackets are ubiquitous in math, but I don't use latex because I get it in a wiki page of pronunciation. I ask it on English.SE. The iPad app can't display them:

But when I am writing this question, I notice that it can, although those brackets are copied from one source:

Some tests: ⟨⟩ ⟨⟩

⟨⟩

They can be displayed in the title though.

• I can't see them in Google Chrome version 40.0.2214.111 either. I can see them in IE version 11.0.9600.17501 and Firefox version 35.0.1 – Thor Feb 13 '15 at 20:15
• Repo on iPhone running latest version of app. Displays in title, but not body. – Cole Johnson Feb 14 '15 at 4:07
• Testing comments: ⟨⟩ ⟨⟩ – Brian Nickel Mar 11 '15 at 20:57

This is an interesting case of character support and font substitution. If you look at the question on desktop Safari, you will see the brackets correct everywhere. If you look at the question in iPad Safari, you'll see boxes everywhere but in fixed-type code: ⟨⟩. If you look in the app, you'll see boxes in the post body and brackets in the title, editor, comments, etc.
Taking things one step further, if you copy the text "⟨⟩ ⟨⟩" from desktop Safari into TextEdit, you'll see that the fixed sized text has the expected font "Menlo" but the normal text has the unexpected font "Apple Symbols".
