[webkit-dev] STIX Fonts and MathML Tests

Sausset François has been looking at using the newly released STIX
fonts  for the MathML implementation. If we start requiring STIX
font support for MathML, how do we guarantee:
* these fonts exist in the build process so the tests will succeed,
* these fonts exist on the target platform.
Certainly, we can create a stylesheet that degrades when the
fonts are missing. We could also do something with web fonts 
but that seems like a bad idea for WebKit as a core platform for
a variety of browsers.
In general, we're working towards a point where we'd like to turn
on MathML by default and, at that point, the tests must be run. For
the tests to succeed, we'd need the STIX fonts available.
Is there any precedence for this or default policy for tests requiring
"The excellence of grammar as a guide is proportional to the paucity of the
inflexions, i.e. to the degree of analysis effected by the language
