No. You specified in your @font-face rule that 'font-family: myFont1; font-style: italic; font-weight: bold;' should use the "fonts/times.ttf" font. And that is what you got in your #box rule with those declarations. When you say you only got the font, that is all you should get. If "times.ttf" is not a bold italic font, saying that is is one in the @font-face rule won't change that. If it has multiple faces in it, it is not using them, because @font-face is for only one face per rule; the @rule is only defining the single face that has those descriptors, not the whole family. 

PS This is not the right forum for asking this sort of question. This list is for discussing the further development of CSS, not for learning how existing features work.
