Core Text shaping failure in Indic text due to join-control characters
Spun off from bug 1194105 comment 6, as I think this is distinct from the original issue in that bug. Testcase: data:text/html;charset=utf-8, <span style="font:36px Telugu MN">&%23xc15;&%23xc4d;&%23x200c; should render the same as: data:text/html;charset=utf-8, <span style="font:36px Telugu MN">&%23xc15;&%23xc4d; i.e. the ZWNJ should not affect it. But it fails, because Telugu MN doesn't include glyphs for ZWNJ/ZWJ, and this causes Core Text to use a fallback (even though it won't be visible). This then makes us think shaping failed, and punt to harfbuzz, which can't actually shape this (AAT-only) font properly.
