    Description

      Accidentally noticed a possible bug in parsing name records:

      1) Class NamingTable.java, line 165:

      for (int i = 4; i <= 0; i--)

      this loop is never entered, thus, Unicode strings are not considered.

      2) Class NamingTable.java, line 106:

      String string = data.readString(nr.getStringLength(), charset);

      for platform == 0 (Unicode), strings are read in ISO-8859-1 charset, but most likely it should be UTF16 charset.

      This may affect values of the FontFamily and FontSubFamily fields.
