Thanks John! I mistakenly clicked on "latest version" and not "editor's

I've experimented a bit with this API on Chrome. Although it helpfully
tells me when fonts are loaded, it actually fulfills the promise before the
fonts are applied.
So, if I look at the page during the 'ready' phase, the font is still not
there. I can work around it by doing a 'requestAnimationFrame' but it seems
like the callback should happen after content that uses the fonts is laid
out. Thoughts?
