They often display a greater variation between thick and thin strokes than fonts from the 'sans-serif' generic font family. CSS uses the term 'serif' to apply to a font for any script, although other names may be more familiar for particular scripts, such as Mincho Japanese , Sung or Song Chinese , Totum or Kodig Korean.
Any font that is so described may be used to represent the generic 'serif' family. Glyphs in sans-serif fonts, as the term is used in CSS, tend to have stroke endings that are plain -- with little or no flaring, cross stroke, or other ornamentation. Sans-serif fonts are typically proportionately-spaced.
They often have little variation between thick and thin strokes, compared to fonts from the 'serif' family. CSS uses the term 'sans-serif' to apply to a font for any script, although other names may be more familiar for particular scripts, such as Gothic Japanese , Kai Chinese , or Pathang Korean.
Any font that is so described may be used to represent the generic 'sans-serif' family. Glyphs in cursive fonts, as the term is used in CSS, generally have either joining strokes or other cursive characteristics beyond those of italic typefaces. The glyphs are partially or completely connected, and the result looks more like handwritten pen or brush writing than printed letterwork.
Fonts for some scripts, such as Arabic, are almost always cursive. CSS uses the term 'cursive' to apply to a font for any script, although other names such as Chancery, Brush, Swing and Script are also used in font names.
Fantasy fonts, as used in CSS, are primarily decorative while still containing representations of characters as opposed to Pi or Picture fonts, which do not represent characters. The sole criterion of a monospace font is that all glyphs have the same fixed width. This can make some scripts, such as Arabic, look most peculiar. The effect is similar to a manual typewriter, and is often used to set samples of computer code. The 'font-style' property selects between normal sometimes referred to as "roman" or "upright" , italic and oblique faces within a font family.
A value of 'normal' selects a font that is classified as 'normal' in the UA's font database, while 'oblique' selects a font that is labeled 'oblique'. A value of 'italic' selects a font that is labeled 'italic', or, if that is not available, one labeled 'oblique'. The font that is labeled 'oblique' in the UA's font database may actually have been generated by electronically slanting a normal font. Fonts with Oblique, Slanted or Incline in their names will typically be labeled 'oblique' in the UA's font database.
Another type of variation within a font family is the small-caps. In a small-caps font the lower case letters look similar to the uppercase ones, but in a smaller size and with slightly different proportions. The 'font-variant' property selects that font. A value of 'normal' selects a font that is not a small-caps font, 'small-caps' selects a small-caps font.
As a last resort, uppercase letters will be used as replacement for a small-caps font. The following example results in an 'H3' element in small-caps, with any emphasized words in oblique, and any emphasized words within an 'H3' oblique small-caps:. There may be other variants in the font family as well, such as fonts with old-style numerals, small-caps numerals, condensed or expanded letters, etc. The 'font-weight' property selects the weight of the font. The values '' to '' form an ordered sequence, where each number indicates a weight that is at least as dark as its predecessor.
The keyword 'normal' is synonymous with '', and 'bold' is synonymous with ''. Keywords other than 'normal' and 'bold' have been shown to be often confused with font names and a numerical scale was therefore chosen for the 9-value list.
The 'bolder' and 'lighter' values select font weights that are relative to the weight inherited from the parent:. Fonts the font data typically have one or more properties whose values are names that are descriptive of the "weight" of a font. There is no accepted, universal meaning to these weight names.
Their primary role is to distinguish faces of differing darkness within a single font family. Usage across font families is quite variant; for example, a font that one might think of as being bold might be described as being Regular, Roman, Book, Medium, Semi- or DemiBold, Bold, or Black, depending on how black the "normal" face of the font is within the design.
The association of other weights within a family to the numerical weight values is intended only to preserve the ordering of darkness within that family. However, the following heuristics tell how the assignment is done in this case:. Once the font family's weights are mapped onto the CSS scale, missing weights are selected as follows:.
