           Summary: wrong font weight for some Win32 fonts in PDF output
           Product: cairo
           Version: 1.8.6
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Windows (All)
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: pdf backend

PDF output on Windows (using the cairo_win32_font_face_... functions) emits
some (not all) fonts with a non-bold font weight, even though the font was
created as bold, and shows up bold on other surfaces.

A test case is attached to this bug report. It prints a four lines. The first
line is Arial non-bold; the second is Arial bold; the third is "Arial Unicode
MS" non-bold; the fourth is "Arial Unicode MS" bold. In the PNG output, the
second and fourth line are visibliy bold. In the PDF output, only the second
line is bold. The fourth is incorrectly not bold.
