Description Caolan McNamara 2006-09-21 04:16:52 EDT
Description of problem:

We need fontconfig to prefer the metrically equivalent available fonts as
fallbacks for Times New Roman/Arial and Courier New

i.e. 

Times New Roman -> 1st level Thorndale AMT & 2nd level Nimbus Roman No9 L
Arial -> Albany AMT
Courier New -> Cumberland AMT

and then...
Thorndale -> Thorndale AMT and 2nd level Nimbus Roman No9 L
Albany -> Albany AMT
Cumberland -> Cumberland AMT

We had the logic the way we needed earlier in the older conf files
so expected results for FC-6 is...

fc-match "Times New Roman" is Nimbus Roman No9 L
fc-match "Thorndale AMT" is Nimbus Roman No9 L
fc-match "Thorndale" is Nimbus Roman No9 L

for RHEL-5

fc-match "Times New Roman" is Thorndale AMT
fc-match "Thorndale" is Thorndale AMT
fc-match "Arial" is Albany AMT
fc-match "Albany" is Albany AMT
fc-match "Courier New" is Cumberland AMT
fc-match "Cumberland" is Cumberland AMT
