Hi Markus,

Support for OpenType font features is detailed in the current Editor's draft of the CSS3 Fonts spec.  You can follow discussions about it which take place on the www-style mailing list (cc'd).

Subject: Status of OT font features and CSS? (user question)

Dear all,

can anyone give me an idea of where you currently stand with CSS specs 
work for advanced OT features such as ligatures, proportional figures, 
and tabular lining? (I am particularly interested in the latter), and 
when users can expect to see support for this in stable browsers?

I am aware that these things were supported by pre-3.6 experimental 
builds of Firefox (cf. 
http://people.mozilla.org/~jdaggett/webfonts/tabulardata.html), but 
haven't been able to find any information more recent than approx. 10/2009.

Thanks a lot.

Markus Flatscher
