Installed Dingbat font won't display in Firefox

I installed a dingbat font to decorate my chapter headings. The dingbats displayed correctly in IE and in the LIT file I generated using readerworks. However, it did not display correctly when I opened the html file in Mozilla Firefox in the same computer.

So for Chapter 1 instead of

Dingbat 1 dingbat

it showed up as

M 1 m

I'm new to html and would appreiate some help.

Thanks, I also used Frontpage to make the html file. Maybe that has something to do with it? Oh, and Firefox version is 3.5.6.

Code:
<style>

body{
font-family:"Georgia", serif;
}

h1{
font-family:"Bookman Old Style", serif;
font-size:300%;
text-align:center;
}

span.decorate{
font-family:"Nymphette";
}

</style>

<body>
<h1><span class="decorate">e</span>1<span class="decorate">f</span></h1>
</body>

Nymphette is the exact name of the dingbat font in question? And it's installed? I don't see why this shouldn't work. I sure as heck can't see why it would be "M 1 m" rather than "e1f".

I used your code... adding only <html> and </html> at the beginning and end, and <head>... </head> before and after <style>...</style> (which I assume you had elsewhere), and changed the font names to ones I had installed, and it worked just fine in Firefox 3.5.6 for Ubuntu.
