Isn't there a move for browsers to ignore installed fonts and use only
embedded plus serif/sans/mono/fantasai/cursive or whatever the list is?

What if the test harness JavaScript code injected @font-face for Ahem
to every test??

CSS never did have a way to distinguish two fonts of the same name but
from different foundries (there's a sans-serif text face called Symbol,
for example, which is not at all the same as Adobe Symbol), nor to
request a specific-or-later version of a font, but i'm not aware of any
other fonts called "ahem", so the only problem is not having installed
the font, not getting the wrong font.
