"?"..."!" (Posted on 2011-02-11) Difficulty: 2 of 5

If the sum of 19968 and 22235 is expressed as 0063, and the product of 20108 and 19977 as 0362, then how would the difference between 20845 and 20116 be rendered?

Unfortunately we are limited to a small selection of Unicodes due to settings on our browsers.

My Firefox (Menu - View/Character Encoding) is set to Western (ISO-8859-1). 

I tried the following experiment.
1. I set the FF to UTF-8 meaning that codes outside my default range are translated.
2. I went through the preliminaries of posting a new problem.
   In the editor I entered:
3. At Preview the calligraphy for 1 and 4 was displayed.  [I have also set the Encoding to Universal and the calligraphy appears].

No. Forget.  Experiment failed!  Turned off those setting and the calligraphy was still visible.   I haven't tried this in an earlier version however.
