Here's a gif of what's happening. Again, this doesn't happen in Firefox or Safari, only Chrome.

I believe it is chrome's bug to treat unicode chars in same word as same font face.

@font-face {
font-family: "Helvetica Neue For Number";
src: local("Helvetica Neue");
unicode-range: U+30-39;

You can override the @font-family variables as a workaround.

Change Helvetica Neue to another number-monospace font Tahoma for number to resolve this problem. 😅
