> at least in WebKit, all of the generic font families except system-ui match only a single font, not an entire stack.

Are you saying that for `font-family: serif, MyWebFont`, there are some characters that will trigger the web font as opposed to a system font? This is interesting & opposite to how I've always interpreted the spec. Although now I reread it, I agree with you: it never says that the generics must match for every character!

Can anyone answer how it works in other browsers? Do the existing generics always guarantee complete character coverage?
