Yes the limits are aligned correctly with the new lyx.css file, on
both Safari and Chrome. However, there is another problem when I test
the test/math-1-6-2.lyx, please see the safari.png.

I tried to use Arial Unicode MS with Chrome, however, the spaces are
still displayed as boxes. In Firefox, however, Vendana or Times can
display them well.

I don't know whether this information is useful for you,
For the list of spaces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/En_space#Table_of_spaces
My Chrome can not display:
U+1680  &#5760;         Ogham Space Mark
U+202F  &#8239;         Narrow No-Break Space
U+205F  &#8287;         Medium Mathematical Space
U+2060  &#8288;         Word Joiner     
All other spaces are displayed well.

Oh, sorry it was the outdated IE6.
