Description of problem:
From the AppStream documentation:
"If the font metadata does not define an own screenshot, the AppStream generator is supposed to render one or multiple sample images using the respective font."

We don't want font maintaners to provide screenshots of the font — they'll get out of date and seem pointless anyway, when gnome-software is able to generate a great preview on its own. And the big empty box is inelegant and makes the rest of the preview scroll of the bottom of the page.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
100%. Please see attached screenshot.
