I may even be able to make the list even longer: font-variant support, font-selection-strategy="character-by-character". I don't want to make this any harder but maybe it's worth having at least a short glance at the two properties while you're at it. But I'm not sure if it really plays into the current topic. <snip/> Jeremias Maerki
