Another culprit symbol I see displayed in the same wrong way is 
//*​ *//which represents the zero-width space in html.
This page ( , search for 
π=3.1415) displays them wrong in chrome.

DevTools shows this line to have the font-family "Lucida Sans Unicode", 
"Lucida Grande", "Lucida Sans", Verdana, Univers, "Zurich BT", Geneva, 
Lucida, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif.
Turning off the check box near this font-family changes the font of the 
line π=3.1415... (font appearance changes), but the problem stays.
So it's most likely not just a faulty font issue, but some font-related 
logic fault in chrome.
