The wording for describing unquoted family names has been
changed in CSS 2.1, you should review the wording here:

http://www.w3.org/Style/css2-updates/css2/fonts.html#font-family-prop

With this, unquoted family names need to be a sequence of identifiers
(in CSS terms), so effectively that requires quoted strings for the
example you mention. My intention is to incorporate this updated CSS
2.1 wording into CSS3 Fonts.

Cheers,
