Jon et al,

I was doing some reading of the August SVG CR and comparing it to the CSS2 
Recommendation.

There seems to be an inconsistency between the documents for the term "Web 
fonts" (one capital with a space, used in SVG CR) and "WebFont" and 
"WebFonts" (two capitals, no space) used mainly in CSS2.

Since, SVG explicitly states that it uses CSS2 "WebFonts" it seems to me that 
it would be slightly better to use the typical spelling used in CSS2.

In passing, CSS2 isn't totally consistent. It used "Web fonts" (with a space) 
in Section 1.4 but thereafter consistently uses "WebFont" or "WebFonts" (two 
capitals, no space) as far as I can see.

In the SVG CR the question seems to apply to Section 10.2, 10.5, 20.1 and 
20.2 as well as Appendix J.
