For the record: There is no such thing as Mozilla 5.0, and Mozilla 1.0 has
not been released yet. Work is currently happening on Mozilla 0.6 and
Mozilla 0.9 (based off the Netscape6 branch and the Mozilla Trunk
respectively).

[Also, currentlt builds actually lack the feature to set the exact font of
every font-family, so the statement is not 100% correct anyway! ;-) ]
