Awaiting this with great anticipation.
Any objections to spreading the word around about this outside the list?

Unfortunately (embarrassingly!), the Firefox build and test fonts that  
I posted earlier were using an obsolete definition of the WebOTF  
header, not corresponding to the latest draft text.

I have now corrected the fonts and the code in the .zip archive; new  
Firefox test builds are in progress and will shortly be available at:


(The Linux one is there at this time; OS X and Windows versions are  
still building.) Hope I got it right this time!
