    Description

      sun/font/FileFontStrike.java has this code :-
              boolean disableHinting = desc.aaHint != INTVAL_TEXT_ANTIALIAS_OFF &&
                                       fileFont.familyName.startsWith("Amble");

      The Amble fonts were licnsed for use by FX a long time ago
      and I don't recall that we used them except in FX 1.
      Also this logic only mattered when the FX rendering pipeline
      was the so-called "Swing" pipeline. Prism obsoleted that and this code which we should remove.
