           Summary: Font variants (e.g. Helvetica Neue *Light*) don't render
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
               URL: http://guillermoesteves.com/test.html
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: New Bugs
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: gfesteves at yahoo.com

As of WebKit nightly r31623 on Mac OS 10.5, specifying, say, font-family:
"HelveticaNeue-Light" or font-family: "HelveticaNeue-UltraLight" no longer
renders the appropriate Helvetica Neue variant. They simply render as regular
Helvetica Neue.

can see how it looks in nightly r31623, and on the right, how it looks in
Safari 3.1
