The primarily issue is not the lack of font support, the issue is using 
CSS instead of raster based images of text. So, I mapped it to Guidelien 
1.3.
For the time being, mapping the SC to "UNKNOWN" although it might map to 
emphasis.

Linked to guideline 3.1 and the first Level 1 criterion. Will need to 
add a bug about this. It's not a perfect fit.
