This CSS3 module describes how font properties are specified and how font resources are loaded dynamically. The contents of this specification are a consolidation of content previously divided into CSS3 Fonts and CSS3 Web Fonts modules.
These specifications have either been superseded by others, or have been abandoned. They remain available for archival purposes, but are not intended to be used.
This document presents a set of properties allowing font specification by a user agent as well as additional font decoration properties like font effects, emphasis, smoothing, etc... The font specification is very close to the similar section in CSS 2 [CSS2]. The font decoration properties are new to CSS3.
