Exactly.  In the first one, I set my browser's default font
to sans-serif.  In the second one, I changed my browser's
default font to serif.

No.  My browser is displaying the fonts I request,

No.  For that screenshot, I had set my browser's default
font to sans-serif, and then my browser displayed the text
in a sans-serif font, so my browser *succeeded* in finding
the right font.

Yes, because that time I had set the default font to serif.

I hope not! :)  That would make this bug extra hard to track
down.  Far better for it to be consistent.  I can try that,
but I don't really think that will help.

Personally, I wouldn't be so quick to make that conclusion.
Hypothetically, if a new LilyPond release completely failed
to work on Mac and Windows, but continued to work for you
and Colin, I don't think you'd say there's no problem with
the lilypond code.

In any case, does anyone have any suggestions for
troubleshooting this?
