           Summary: unicode: with font-family:webdings, characters are
                    represented as pictorials
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Text
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: phiw at l-c-n.com

The 2 lines in the testcase should be identical, and showing the string 'oy!'.
However with div style="font-family: Webdings, sans-serif;", webkit renders the
string as some pictorials: U+F06F, U+F078, U+F021.
Expected: the characters with code points: U+006F, U+0079, U+0021, as set in
the source code.

(the fact that on a Mac keyboard the '!' (U+0021) can be used to input the
spider pictorial (U+F021) is unrelated)

wrong: WebKit and Safari, Opera 9.2, 9.5b, only on Mac
correct: Gecko 1.9 (Firefox 3rc), Opera 9.x on Windows and Linux
