Websites that have a reference to a font called "Times" in the style section cannot be displayed in IE9 (blank page is shown) if the font "Times" is actually installed on the local computer. The reason seems to be that "Times" is a postscript Type 1 font. If the postscript font is not installed locally, Windows substitutes "Times" with "Times New Roman PS" (aka times.ttf) and the website is displayed ok.
Problem: Users should not be forced to delete their postscript typefaces from their computers, just so that IE9 doesn't get confused.
Proposed Solution: IE9 should be patched so that it doesn't try to display fonts that DirectWrite cannot handle. Instead it should use font substitution tables or fallback fonts.
