Firefox 3 uses Cario and Pango uniformly on all platforms, rather than
just on GNU/Linux, I think? So when the implementation of 'user fonts'
is finished (which is also planned for use in Inkscape, for making SVG
fonts) then FF3 will have webfonts in a uniform and crossplatform way.

I could be completely mistaken about this; I hope someone will correct
me if so :-)
