Created attachment 634829 [details] [diff] [review]
patch, update the default Mac font prefs

The default fonts listed in all.js do not include many of the Indic (etc) fonts that are now shipped with OS X, which causes us to unnecessarily hit system fallback and potentially choose Arial Unicode MS in many cases where this isn't really the best option.

Pushed this to tryserver to check that changing these prefs won't break any existing tests:

Looks good but I think we should trim out the old Bengali font settings.  Having a font name like this in the pref list will trigger localized name loading for any place that includes even the smallest snippet of Bengali script (e.g. a language list on a BBC page).  Non-default fonts should still be picked up by CoreText system fallback.
