support Variation Selector sequences on all platforms
Bug 552460 implemented support for Unicode variation sequences on Windows. However, support is not uniform across the other platforms: - on OS X 10.5, variation sequences are apparently not supported; - on OS X 10.6, the proper glyph substitution occurs but the glyph position appears to be incorrect (possible Core Text issue?) -- see bug 552460 comments 33 and 34; - untested on Linux as yet. We should ensure that we support these sequences across all platforms.
Now that the harfbuzz back-end is enabled, we have variation selector support on OS X and can enable the reftest from bug 552460 on this platform as well. Not yet implemented on Linux.
Attachment #460520 - Flags: review?(jdaggett)
Comment on attachment 460520 [details] [diff] [review] enable the variation selector reftest on OS X I think the 'skip-if' should be 'random-if' instead, dbaron has in the past recommended that 'skip-if' only be used for cases where the testcase in question is known to cause a crash or some other form of trouble. Including tests whose result is ignored still helps code coverage on all platforms.

(In reply to comment #2) > I think the 'skip-if' should be 'random-if' instead Good point; changed this. Pushed http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/beab39d49de9 Not closing this bug as we don't have VS support on Linux yet.
Supported on Linux since bug 569770. Marked test as passing: http://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/rev/cae10c2b6981
