I tried it on my G5 and it didn't work --- I suspect if I copy it to  
my pen slate it will, so there seems to be something strange about  
how this font is constructed which is making it operate  
inconsistently between Mac OS X and the Linux/Windows port.

Do we have a better nomenclature for describing this bifurcation?

On Mac OS X it uses AAT, right? What's the equivalent being used on  
Linux/Windows Graphite?
