All, 

Many of you must be familiar with the ACID3 browser test hosted at http://acid3.acidtests.org/.

It runs a set of Javascript tests and includes a visual rendering test as well. Namely, if the @font-face rule 
in the test fails to load a white X on a fuchsia background will be visibile in the top right corner. The font
used for this is the Ahem font, a CSS test font composed of four rectangular glyphs of known em sizes:
http://www.hixie.ch/resources/fonts/.

The current test loads this font as a raw TTF only. It would seem appropriate for the test to be updated
with a WOFF version of the test font i.e. instead of just:

	@font-face { font-family: "AcidAhemTest"; src: url(font.ttf); }

...the test rule would be:

	@font-face { font-family: "AcidAhemTest"; src: url(font.woff), url(font.ttf); }

Ian Hickson maintains the test and is willing to do the edit given approval on a publicly archived mailing list
by browser vendors. Would that be OK with everyone ?
