That sounds interesting, but do www browsers support that? That is, can 
you get anything more than just normal and bold (and possibly fake bold 
different from bold on IE in some situations which I don't quite 
understand) by using different font-weight values? Or can you get the 
small-caps variant (instead of reduced-size uppercase letters) using 
font-variant?

(You can probably get e.g. the Light version by using
font-family: Gladiator Light;
but that's no the intended way, is it?)
