She's using some 1980s technology: providing IPA symbols by using a font that maps them onto the code-points 20-FF. If any characters fall in the range 7F-A0, no modern font will display anything. I'm not sure that SIL still have the fonts, though they do have a utility to convert documents using them into Unicode. And I complained about people using SAMPA!
