screenshot of testcase

When text-rendering: optimizeLegibility; is specified, Safari 5 cannot render opentype downloadable fonts correctly. Truetype fonts work correctly.

@font-face {
	font-family: 'Graublau Web';
	src:  url(./GraublauWeb.otf) format("opentype");

html {text-rendering: optimizeLegibility;}

test case in URL field

- this works correctly on Windows Vista and Windows 7.
- Google Chrome apppears not to be affected (not unexpected, different code path for those fonts).

In the attached screenshot: Safari 5 vs Minefield (gecko) recent nightly (background window).
