Loading a user-font causes a restyle event in Gecko that can hide
legitimate layout bugs.  So I think it would be better if the CSS
test suite stay the way it is and NOT add a @font-face for Ahem.
We should fix this on our side by requiring that Ahem is installed
as a system font on machines that run the test suite.
