Myles, thanks for getting back on this. I agree that Webkit is very nearly compliant; Fonts 3 requires **all** of the listed features to be enabled by default and thus the test I wrote requires all of them, rather than testing each individually. If I had done the unit tests, Webkit would be passing most of them.

Yes, not enabling `vert` in vertical text is certainly a bug. Firefox had the same bug, which I reported and they fixed.

Khaled, I agree. This will certainly break Vietnamese and Arabic (for the latter see [Developing OpenType Fonts for Arabic Script (3 of 3): Features](https://www.microsoft.com/typography/otfntdev/arabicot/features.aspx) ) but even for what Microsoft charmingly calls "standard scripts" (Latin, Cyrillic, Greek and Armenian) `mkmk` is listed as **required**:
