Description Luca Ferretti 2008-04-17 12:46:06 PDT
As per summary, the downloadable fonts feature described here don't works with pango backend in my WebKit build (using jhbuild). This seems a pango only bug: in fact trying midori browser installed by distro (using svn release 29752), the same feauture works fine. See attached screenshots.  http://www.alistapart.com/d/cssatten/nels.html

Created attachment 20633 [details] Downloadable fonts with Pango backend The screenshots shows Epiphany running on recent (5~6 hours ago) WebKit checkout. I don't know if donwloadable fonts was downloaded, but of course wasn't used :-(

Created attachment 20634 [details] Downloadable fonts with Freetype backend To quickly check if this was a Pango only bug, I tried the same page with midori browser shipped with Ubuntu 8.04. WebKit installed by package libwebkitgtk1d_0~svn29752-1_i386.deb

Luca, Pango upstream is missing support to load fonts from memory -- I believe the bug was reported to b.g.o years ago but I don't have a reference to hand. The Pango backend can't become the default until this is fixed.

Updated WebKit module on jhbuild to not force pango backend. Alp, we could open a new pango bug...
