When I added this numeric reference for the symbol Rupee to a webpage:

Microsoft IE displays the character as a small rectangle box. But it
works fine in Firefox. How can I correct this for IE ?

Ubuntu 10.10 was the first operating system to include this version of Unicode.

The symbol will be visible only if your computer has the updated version of Unicode Installed.

Till then, you may consider using a image version of it:
