Something else browsers get wrong: CSS font-weight

Esteemed colleague Richard Rutter finds that only Firefox 3 gets CSS font-weight right.

I always wondered what the point of the numeric weight option was to begin with. Reduces typos? Getting around language barriers?

Knowing the numeric weight facilitates the application of an alternative typeface if and when the original is not available. That would be my guess.

No need for guessing, there’s a spec.
