Sorry .. but there may be more work needed on 8 that I forgot about.
But its for Oracle JDK to account for the fact that CFF fonts are still 
being excluded there.

In a nutshell .. if we end up with zero fonts as a result .. just add 
the Oracle JDK's Lucida Sans
as slot 0 font so that there is SOMETHING.

However I know you can't test this .. since you don't have that font.

So if you'd prefer to stick to what you can test I'd quite understand 
and we'd handle that part separately.
