Remove support for the Zapf Dingbats encoding and other dead-code encoder-only encodings
We have support for x-zapf-dingbats but it does not appear to be exposed to the Web or used in font code: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ident?i=zapf&tree=mozilla-central&filter= It was added by Frank Tang in 1999 with the helpful comment “add unicode encoders”. Let’s remove it.

Awesome. We've had bogus comments in a property file for a long time, but the entry after the comments was useless, so no one noticed. https://tbpl.mozilla.org/?tree=Try&rev=484564b87ce1

Comment on attachment 8355210 [details] [diff] [review] Remove dead code, fix property file comments It seems to me that these encodings exist, because year ago the X11 gfx code knew about font-specific encodings and this stuff wasn't fully removed when X11 gfx moved to FreeType2, etc.
