I don't know ; I will have a look at this later...

No, there is just one geneva font, located in HD/System/Library/Fonts and the
regular Safari webkit refuses to use it in bold (even when no other alternative
is specified ; Safari will fall with arial...)
You can see it in action here (image + html) :

All that said, I'm not sure if the strange behaviour I see is worth the time
you spend on  it...
Maybe we could just keep in mind that something still have to be clarified in
the way webkit deals with fonts...
