Mozilla's font inspector API

Yesterday's Mozilla platform meeting minutes has this:
"Jonathan Kew’s font inspector API landed. You can now write extensions that will tell you exactly what font(s) are being used to render any given DOM range including the entire document, or a single character. For downloaded fonts you can get metadata including the license."

See bug #467669: Need chrome-accessible API for getting list of font faces used by content and the corresponding one in Firebug: bug #3071 Display sample of WOFF file inside Net Panel.

Yet another huge step forward for webfonts and webdesigners! Major kudos for making this happen!
