Hello,


http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-CSS2-20101207/fonts.html#font-family-prop

http://www.w3.org/TR/2009/CR-CSS2-20090908/fonts.html#font-family-prop

http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/WD-CSS2-20101207-20090908-diff/fonts.html#font-family-prop

The sentence which used to say
"
If quoting is omitted, any white space characters before and after the
font name are ignored and any sequence of white space characters inside
the font name is converted to a single space.
"

has been removed in latest WD. Why?

I sincerly believe it should remain, be kept as it was.

Right now, the latest WD emphasizes quoting font-family names with special
characters (punctuation, white spaces) and/or with reserved words. But it
does not state (as it previous version) how to deal, how to parse font
name with sequences of white spaces before and/or inside and/or after font
family names.

There are testcases [see 1] in current version of CSS 2.1 test suite which
were putting to test (mettre à l'épreuve) the beforementioned quote.
