As I noted to Arron, this test passes on non-Windows platforms.  It's a
byproduct of GDI usage which allows family names *and* fullnames as
lookup keys for fonts.  This means "Arial Bold" matches something on
Windows but not on any other platform.

These tests are *only* for browsers that support font families with more
than the four basic regular/bold/italic/bold-italic faces.  So IE8
shouldn't pass but IE9 should (I can't for the life of me begin to
explain IE9 behavior as seen in the latest dev preview build).
