The last commit should fix that.

This looks good:

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px FreeSerif">%E2%B2%B0%CC%80

Language-tagging the text as Coptic breaks mark positioning:

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px FreeSerif" lang=cop>%E2%B2%B0%CC%80

This is because "'kern' kerning for Coptic" specifies a script tag of 'copt' and language system tags of 'COP ' and 'dflt'. This is overly specific. It should only specify the language system tag 'dflt', like the other Coptic lookups.
