For Chromium on Linux, we try to insulate ourselves from the platform
settings by injecting a custom fontconfig file and font list that
makes things match Windows behavior.  (Matching Windows is important
because many sites will hardcode a pixel width on a div then fill it
with text and expect the text not to wrap.)

This makes our tests sadly kind of font-set and platform-dependent but
it at least makes the test behave the same regardless of which system
it's run on.

See this code for a discussion:
