XF 1.4 Problems with using Open Sans at 13px

I'm using Google Fonts on my forum, specifically Open Sans at 13px. However, whenever a user posts a tilde mark (~), it only shows as a dash. This oddity only happens at 13px, but that's an optimal size of text for the site.

I can replicate this in a few browsers, and a clear demo is by using this Google Font site and selecting Open Sans (normal 400) at 13px, then typing a few ~~~:

https://www.google.com/fonts

Does anyone know why the tilde just doesn't display properly under these circumstances (in most browser/OS combinations)? I'd like to use that font at that size, so this is a frustrating problem!
