Description Simon Hausmann 2009-11-10 08:02:31 PST
The Qt port does not correctly choose the fonts specified in HTML/CSS.

This is a placeholder bug that we classify as showstopper for Qt 4.6.
Comment 1 Tor Arne Vestbø (not active) 2009-11-10 08:07:35 PST
In FontCache::getCachedFontPlatformData() we ignore the family argument which contains the resolved real font family from the web settings, and instead we pass on the generic font family to Qt.

Quick fix here: http://gist.github.com/230871

Will try patch against 4.5 first to not mess up the buildbot too much.

I believe this may be the same as bug #22896
