The GNOME 1 branch used Freetype for font rendering, and GNOME 2 uses
Pango.  A quick look at the code, it looks like the GNOME 1 branch has
the code that sets the font-family commented out (no idea why, no
comments in the code to that effect).  Looking at the GNOME 2 branch,
though, it gets the font from a "font-family" CSS parameter, so that
should work... Although there might be some difference between an SVG
font description and a pango one... worth looking into.
