It seems to me we're having trouble with the definition of "reset".  
 From what I can grok it means:

for <parent><child /></parent>

parent { font: normal normal 11px/20px serif; }
child {
     font-weight: bold;
     font-style: italic;
     font: 2em/200% sans-serif;

The font-weight and font-style are /reset/ by the font declaration,  
such that the computed style for child is { font: normal normal 22px/ 
40px sans-serif }

Does that make sense out of it?
