SIL IPA fonts don't work very well on web pages. Newer browsers display
them as "symbol" fonts, which means they use some character codes in the
upper stratosphere of Unicode, not the ASCII characters (and nowhere near
the real IPA characters either). You have to go back to Netscape 3.0 to be
able to see them (or maybe even an earlier version, I don't remember
exactly when the SIL fonts stopped working with Netscape).
