Alexey Proskuryakov, Mitz Pettel, and others helped look into this. It seems that Microsoft Office X installs 
a version of Arial (2.90) where the bold variant is missing some bit somewhere that NSFontManager uses 
to determine that it's bold. So people who've installed this particular font can run into the problem. Alexey 
could reproduce after installing Arial from Microsoft Office X.

However, my Powerbook has this same version of Arial as the active Arial Bold, and it does not have this 
problem, so there is still some mystery here.

Also, this shows that problems with existing fonts in the field are going to make Safari look bad with our 
new synthetic bold and perhaps italic code.
