Yes, both my screenshots are from Windows.

So, it seems -- also based on Philippe Wittenbergh's screenshot [1] --
that Gecko's behavior is platform-dependent. Perhaps the problem is
system-related, rather than browser-related? Could it be that the
Starburst font triggers different behavior on Windows and Mac? And
that Safari differs on Windows because it takes with it parts of the
Mac system to Windows?

Any font detectives out there?
