it is not possible to know for sure if the CSSHWOrientationTest.otf font 
file is the most recent version of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf. The last 
modified date info does not relate to the version of the OTF font file. 
The filesize given of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf at 
test.csswg.org/source/css-writing-modes-3/support/adobe-fonts/ is 45.8 

On the other hand, at


the latest most recent version of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf is 1.005 and 
its filesize is 33.2 Kilo-bytes .

This brings a possible problem...


All 16 text-orientation-script-001* tests use and resort to

@font-face {
     font-family: "orientation";
     src: url("support/adobe-fonts/CSSHWOrientationTest.otf");

which, in all probabilities, do not link to the latest, most recent 
version of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf .

There ought to be a way to avoid and to prevent such "inaccuracy"...

The support/adobe-fonts/CSSHWOrientationTest.otf should be using the 
most recent version possible of CSSHWOrientationTest.otf . This seems 
increasingly important since the text-orientation-script-001* tests 
appear to be very difficult, very user-system-resources demanding to 
testers (starting with me).

Another question - maybe not an important issue, hard to say - about 
CSSHWOrientationTest.otf is why some browsers (eg Firefox 41) "believe" 
that CSSHWOrientationTest.otf is an ODF file type that can be processed 
by LibreOffice Math? When Elika and I do a left mouse button click on 
the link CSSHWOrientationTest.otf in
this happens.

I have looked inside Firefox's 41 preferences and settings and I can not 
figure this out.

This may be a Firefox-only issue... and a Linux-only issue... I do not 

When I do a left mouse button click on the link CSSHWOrientationTest.otf 
Opera 12.16 "thinks" this is an application/font-snft file type ... 
which makes more sense while Chrome just download automatically the
