 There is a little known problem using Dashicons with Android 4.2 and 4.3,
 and perhaps the later versions.

 If any plugin or theme includes this CSS rule:

 ''text-rendering: optimizeLegibility;''

 then Dashicons (and other icon fonts like genericons) do not display at
 all on those Android devices.

 Twenty Twelve has this, and it should be removed. There should be a
 comment about this problem in at least the core dashicons.css file.

 This is not a well-known problem, and is obviously very embarrassing. It
 is next to impossible for any WP developer to test, but there are still a
 huge number of Android 4.2+ devices.
