Judging by its style sheet, the article expects the user to have one of the
following fonts:
Arial Unicode MS,Bitstream CyberBit,Code2000,Aboriginal Serif,Lucida Sans

Of these, the last two do not display dotted letters; Arial Unicode MS and
Code2000 do, but Arial Unicode MS is not free. Code2000 is, from

Unzip it and install it along with your other fonts, and the page should
display correctly.
