           Summary: REGRESSION: Fonts with 'light' or 'ultra-light'
                    defaulting to those instead of 'regular'
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 420+ (nightly)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://www.apple.com/downloads/dashboard/
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.4
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: CSS
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at opendarwin.org

I'm not sure if this is just my system, since I have about 1000 other fonts
installed, but it works fine in regular Safari.  Anyways, fonts with the
font-size specified will load the 'ultra light' version of the font, if there
is one.  If there is a 'light' version of the font, it seems like you don't
even need the font-size and it will load by default.

If you throw in a font-weight in there, either font-weight:normal, or
font-weight:400, nothing will happen.  However, if you put font-weight:bold, or
800, it will load the 'bold' version of the font.

Besides Helvetica Neue (which you need the font-weight in there to reproduce),
I also tested American Typewriter and Gill Sans, which both had a 'light'
version of the font.  The font-size attribute did not need to be set to
reproduce the error for those fonts.
