Dear Release Team,

A solution for https://bugs.debian.org/907999 was recently found and the fix
has been tested and pushed onto Sid. Since this bug also affects Stable, it
would be better to have it fixed through a stable-pu as well.

The bug lies in a Debian-provided fontconfig file (70-fonts-noto-cjk.conf) and
the old version was using the "prepend_first" attribute to adjust the font
priority under Chinese-locale systems, which turns out to be buggy and made
font rendering to be ignoring font fallback info in CSS files and forcefully
using Noto CJK fonts under certain scenarios in web browsers like Firefox and
Chromium. This proposed patch would solve this bug.

Please review the fix and let me know if there's any question.

The full debdiff is provided as attachment.
