           Summary: WebKit not ensure font load before calling Skia to
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 528+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=944
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: arthurhsu at chromium.org

In Chrome sandbox model, GDI calls such as GetOutlineTextMetrics() can fail if the font is not loaded in memory already.  Chrome browser process implements a hack that will force GDI to load the desired font into memory, and in WebKit terms, it's called PlatformSupport::ensureFontLoaded().

This means that WebKit renderer must call PlatformSupport::ensureFontLoaded() right before calling Skia to draw glyphs because they are both in sandbox.
