Well, I've checked on my pen slate and these same difficulties seem  
to exist in the W32tex (and presumably the Linux version).

I don't know if this is a useful bit of information or not, but in  
Mac OS X, the not unknown character glyph (portrait-oriented  
rectangle w/ an x through it) is set w/ zero width, while in W32xetex  
it's set w/ what seems to be the width of the capital it's being used  
in lieu of.

Also the numerals are set as superscript for ITC Stone Sans (maybe  
the others too).
