Hello all,

This spun from
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-css-testsuite/2013Feb/0008.html

We never discussed this issue before.

Should we allow and promote TTF font embedding in CSS3 tests ?

Benefits:
- no prerequisite to read
- no download, no installation to do


Drawbacks:
- download and processing can be much longer: eg ipam.ttf is 8MB
- not all user agents support TTF font embedding


Any comment is welcomed.

---------

I also believe that any/all fonts necessary to tests should be
fetchable, downloadable from
