Gérard,

I am not involved in maintaining the material at test.csswg.org, so I cannot comment on the version of the fonts that are there, especially given that the fonts are open source and can thus be modified.

The latest version of the fonts in the original GitHub project is indeed 1.005.

I am not sure how to ensure that test.csswg.org stays in sync with the GitHub project.

About why some font consumers think that the fonts are for math or other purposes is likely due to the very complete coverage of Unicode, in terms of their 'cmap' tables. Complete Unicode code point coverage would, of course, tickle the bits that would advertise the fonts as supporting math. I consider this to be failed heuristics on the part of the font consumer.

Regards...

The last modified date info does not relate to the version of the OTF font file. The filesize given of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf at test.csswg.org/source/css-writing-modes-3/support/adobe-fonts/ is 45.8 Kilo-bytes.

This seems increasingly important since the text-orientation-script-001* tests appear to be very difficult, very user-system-resources demanding to testers (starting with me).
