Example text

In practice, not every font is so sophisticated as to have both an italic face and an oblique face, and even fewer web browsers are sophisticated enough to tell the difference when both faces do exist. Figure 25. More font styles If either of these is the case, then there are a few things that can happen. If there is no “Italic” face available, but there is an “Oblique” face, then the latter can be used for the former. If the situation is reversed—an “Italic” face exists, but there is no defined “Ob‐ lique” face—the user agent may not substitute the former for the latter, according to the specification.

Since 800 is assigned to the same font face as 700, there is no visible difference between normal h1 text and bold h1 text, but the weights are different nonetheless. In the last example, paragraphs are set to be the lightest possible font weight, which we assume exists as a “Light” variant. ” Any em text within a paragraph will evaluate to normal since that is the next-heaviest face within the font family. However, what if the only faces in the font are “Regular” and “Bold”? In that case, the declarations would evaluate like this: /* assume only two faces for this example: 'Regular' and 'Bold' p {font-weight: 100;} /* looks the same as 'normal' text */ p span {font-weight: bolder;} /* maps to '700' */ */ As you can see, the weight 100 is assigned to the normal font face, but the value of fontweight is still 100.

It is quite possible for fonts to have characters that are taller than the default distance between baselines. For that matter, a font might be defined such that all of its characters are smaller than its em square, as many fonts do. Some hypothetical examples are shown in Figure 12. info | 27 Figure 12. Font characters and em squares Thus, the effect of font-size is to provide a size for the em box of a given font. This does not guarantee that any of the actual displayed characters will be this size.
