Sorry, Mozilla "try-server" builds expire after two weeks, so this is  
no longer online.

I took a quick look at the "Mayberry" page (sample 3), and I notice  
that the "preview" code displayed on the page does not in fact  
correspond to the CSS that is actually used for the extended family.  
For the latter 4 faces, the CSS actually uses separate family names,  
rather than using the true family name and relying on the descriptor  
values to identify the proper faces. Is this an oversight, or was it a  
hack that turned out to be necessary in order to get the desired  
rendering?
