Okay, I called up Arron Eicholz. Apparently this is a replacement
of the old Ahem font, that includes some glyphs above the ASCII
range to allow testing it. It was created by Sergei at Microsoft.

We should probably move it into the ahem/ directory and replace
the AHEM____.TTF file. There are two ways of doing that:

a) Replace AHEM____.TTF
b) Delete AHEM____.TTF and move ahem3.ttf to fonts/ahem.ttf

I'm not sure what's up with the AHEM____.TTF naming, if it indicates
some kind of special compatibility with ancient Windows systems or

Fonts are scary. Tell me what to do. >_<;;
