Is there a name for the domino like box characters with 4 characters inside that display when you don't have support for a language script?

There a few examples on this page
that show up for me. Bengal, Bhutan and Khmer for example show up as boxes with 4 characters inside. The first two characters are often in common for all the boxes within each language example.
In case it is system dependent - Windows XP, Firefox 3.0.1, English(US).
