Tests for the unicode-range descriptor of the @font-face rule would be
covered by the test suite for CSS3 Fonts.  The Fonts WG will be
working on a test suite related specifically to the WOFF format.

I have a tracking bug for the CSS3 Fonts test suite here:

https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=567934

Feel free to contribute tests.  The only requirement is that they be
in CSS Test Suite format (look over the MS tests for an example).  I'm
going to set up my tests in reftest format which compares two pages
that should render exactly the same way (as opposed to comparing to a
saved image).  This allows automated testing.  Naturally, you can
write the reftests in such a way that trained monkey testing (i.e.
manual visual testing) can also be used.
