Taka Oshiyama,



The top part of your test is now at


I modified your original test (the bottom part) so that the test method 
would be correct (text-combine-upright: all can not be a fully correct 
method of checking text-orientation: upright), more reliable and more 
trustworthy by using Ken Lunde's CSSFWOrientationTest.otf font file, 
which is, after all, a dedicated font for testing text-orientation. This 
new version of your test also makes it possible to make the test 
automatable and not manual.

I've kept your name as author.

One issue that annoys me is the fact that Firefox 46.0a1 
buildID=20160109070010 takes 5 seconds (on average) to fetch the 
"support/adobe-fonts/CSSFWOrientationTest.otf" and then to load it into 
the rendering engine before we can see the rendered layout. Later, I may 
have to add <html class="reftest-wait" ...> into that test...

I thought I had the CSSFWOrientationTest.otf (version 1.005) correctly 
copied into
and into
back in december 2015 but I was wrong. Now I fixed that problem and the 
font file is correct in those folders.
