Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] is it allowed for generic families like system-ui to be overridden by @font-face? (#4580)

No, sorry, I was referring to the *property*, like `h1 { font-family: system-ui; }`.

In the @font-face 'font-family' declaration, it doesn't matter whether it's quoted or not; they do exactly the same thing. But in the property on an element, keywords *always* refer to the generic family, and strings *always* refer to the webfont.
