The warning that is currently displayed only makes sense in extreme edge cases,
like when the font family name actually contains two or more consecutive space
characters, e.g. `Foo    Bar`. In that case, you’d need to use quotes:
`font-family: 'Foo    Bar'`. If you’d use `font-family: Foo    Bar` (without
the quotes) instead, it would get interpreted as `font-family: 'Foo Bar'`, with
only a single space, which wouldn’t match the desired font family name.
