      Description

      If "Arial Black" is registered by that name ahead of requesting "Arial" with black weight, then we will resolve to that, since it is registered by its typographic name as it is populated.

      But Windows does not seem to enumerate Arial Black when enumerating all fonts called "Arial", so when requesting Arial by itself, then it will just give the regular font instead.

      So the result of requesting "Arial" with weight = Black will be different based on what has happened previously in the applications, and fonts may suddenly change during the application life time.
