Hi Fabian,

Thanks for looking at this.  I don't seem to have any old fonts - the system copy is selected by fontconfig, and it is the only version on my system:
$ fc-match arial -f"%{file}\n"
$ locate LiberationSans-Regular

My font setup is almost the Debian default, but I have changed a few
things.  To rule this out, I disabled everything in /etc/fonts/conf.d
and confirmed that ~/.config/font-manager is missing.  Then, I enabled
only the symlink which assigns Liberation Sans to Arial:
# ls -la /etc/fonts/conf.d/*conf lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 36 Jun 25 07:55 /etc/fonts/conf.d/30-metric-aliases.conf -> ../conf.avail/30-metric-aliases.conf

Even with this setup, I am able to reproduce the issue with my HTML
example.  See the attached image for how the HTML looks on my system.
