     89=== Font-metric-related failures ===
     90
     91Running layout-test on Windows requires a set of fonts not normally bundled with Windows. The full list of
     92required fonts can be found here:
     93
     94https://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree/win/DumpRenderTree.cpp#L256
     95
     96Most of these fonts come from OS X, so they can't be freely redistributed as one font-package for testing-purposes.
     97
     98They can however be copied from your Mac (if you have one), but they have to be converted into a TrueType format Windows understands.
     99
     100    * {{{*.ttc}}} files can be extraced using a tool from http://www.xlsoft.com/jp/products/indigorose/files/ttsdk.zip
     101    * {{{*.dfont }}} and Mac-style {{{ *.ttf}}} files can be converted using [http://www.xlsoft.com/jp/products/indigorose/files/ttsdk.zip CrossFont] (the trial edition works fine).
     102
     103Look in {{{/System/Library/Fonts and /Library/Fonts}}} for the source files.
     104
     105The rest of the fonts can be found here:
     106
     107https://trac.webkit.org/browser/trunk/WebKitTools/DumpRenderTree/fonts
     108
     109The easiest approach to do is to convert all these fonts to Windows-style TrueType fonts and put them in a single folder. Then point the {{{WEBKIT_TESTFONTS}}} environment variable to that directory when running {{{run-webkit-tests}}}.
     110
     111Note however that you might still see metric-related failures (if anyone knows why, please update this section with more complete instructions).
