The inclusion of Pango in Firefox enables the support complex scripts 
which I personally favour very much. However, it introduces bugs 
with the interaction with MathML support in Firefox. This issue 
is not font-related per sé; we want Firefox to support Pango and 
also MathML. Once both of these work together it will be browsing nirvana.
