Jason Cranford-Teague has written a long blog post about Web Typography. He is calling for feedback on two CSS 3 modules related to fonts.

… tell me what you think are some of the font styles and features missing from the current specification. What do you expect to be able to do with typography on your Web pages that you can not do now? What are you doing now with kludges that you would like to see simpler ways of doing? Keep in mind that we are talking about font properties and how to style the characters. This includes things like bold, italic, and even outline and emboss which effect how each glyph is rendered. It does not include styles that area applied over an entire block of text such as underlining or rotating text. Those are in different modules.

Also, let me know what you think about some of the new additions to the Fonts specification (font-size-adjust, font-stretch, font-effect, and font-smooth) and any problems you have with the current specifications.

Try to be as specific as possible, and provide examples and links if you can. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Web design community comes up with!

Go add your own comment on his blog. I know at least one person who should send his comments. We had often debates about typography, CSS and standards in the French blogosphere. ;)
