What if the image has been cropped? Or a watermark added? And whatever algorithmic solution is brought to bear, it has to be fast.

comment Where are other important fonts in google docs font list?
Shouldn't be an issue. Did you convert the document to Google Docs format, or are you just using the viewer? I created the screen shots using Firefox on Windows, but I don't see anything on the Google blog about fonts that mentions anything about a browser and/or OS limitation.
