Thanks for the report.
I think this is a dupe of  issue 31833 . Please explicitly specify "font-style: normal;" property for the second @font-face rule, and the problem should be resolved:


The current WebKit behavior matches older CSS draft:
and the draft says that the default (initial) value for font-style: inside @font-face is "all" (i.e. normal | italic), NOT "normal".
You have to specify font-face:normal for the second @font-face rule not to override the first rule.
> You have to specify font-face:normal 
You have to specify font-style:normal 

Ok. Makes sense then.
