URW Chancery L doesn't display in Firefox

Bug Description

Binary package hint: firefox-3.5

All versions of Firefox 3.5 on Linux I've tested, including the ones in Jaunty and in Karmic, and the Mozilla Daily Build Team PPA, have this weakness. The URW Chancery L font is broken.

Instead of displaying the font, it seems the default Sans font is shown.

I have created a font demonstration page, it is located here: http://i-ville.net/fonts.html

The fonts all look identical in Firefox 3.0 and 3.5 to me, except Chancery.

I've attached a screenshot of how the font _should_ look, from Firefox 3.0.

Here's a screenshot of how Firefox 3.5 displays the same page. Note that Chancery, labelled 15, is not correct.
