Issue #1204: Document, and add regtest for, external fonts.

Add a few details in NR "Fonts explained", and
a regtest with base64-embedded minimal OpenType fonts.
(I didn’t want to use musical symbols since the whole
point is that these glyphs are not to be confused with
whatever’s installed on the OS.)
The regtest has been tested with all major versions
since 2.12, and current master with and without Guile2.

LilyPond is getting increasingly good at handling external fonts:
- ly:font-config-add-directory and ly:font-config-add-font have introduced the ability to use specific font files when compiling a score.
- OTF, TTF, Type1 and more recently WOFF fonts are supported (TeX fonts aren't, IIUC).
- Experimental support for 3rd-party music fonts (namely Gonville) has been introduced as well.

All of these nice features are currently not documented in the NR, nor are they demonstrated in the regtests. Can we/should we do something about it?
