This reminds me of two things I am missing in the current builds:

- Support for Adobe Type Manager in the Windows builds (I don't know what the status of the Mac builds is). I am wondering whether I should open a bug report for it...

- Support for downloadable fonts. It is a nice feature of NS4 - I used it e.g. to use our corporate font on our homepage or to display the euro sign, although the TrueDoc fonts do have some nasty bugs/drawbacks. Well, it's not Mozilla's fault that there doesn't exist a standard for this until now.
