/**
 * Font metrics
 *
 * This class may be somewhat misnamed. A better name might be
 * nsFontList. The style system uses the nsFont struct for various
 * font properties, one of which is font-family, which can contain a
 * *list* of font names. The nsFont struct is "realized" by asking the
 * device context to cough up an nsFontMetrics object, which contains
 * a list of real font handles, one for each font mentioned in
 * font-family (and for each fallback when we fall off the end of that
 * list).
 *
 * The style system needs to have access to certain metrics, such as
 * the em height (for the CSS "em" unit), and we use the first Western
 * font's metrics for that purpose. The platform-specific
 * implementations are expected to select non-Western fonts that "fit"
 * reasonably well with the Western font that is loaded at Init time.
