           Summary: RFE: add a gfx preview to font packages
           Product: PackageKit
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: medium
         Component: General
        AssignedTo: richard at hughsie.com
        ReportedBy: nicolas.mailhot at laposte.net

The best way for a user to select a font is to show it to him.

For this reason font sites commonly provide bitmap preview images or so-called
specimen files (typically in PDF form) that showcase the font capabilities.

Packagekit should do the same.

The image should be a pangram

in the main unicode blocks the font supports

The specimen may include unicode coverage info, glyph table, etc
