Well, there is a zipfile of the CSSTest font set already
   http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/Test/Fonts/CSSTest/CSSTest.zip

There isn't one for Ahem since there's just one file. (It's
available in multiple font formats.)

For the MS variations on Ahem, I'd probably do a separate
zipfile for those. They're related to Ahem, but Ahem's required
for layout tests all over the place, whereas the rest of
the Ahem family is only there for font tests. But I'll wait
until Arron tells me the font files are all set to go before
I post them to W3C.
