Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] Proposal to extend CSS font-optical-sizing (#4430)

The problem comes in when you consider what happens when you look at something printed from the web next to something printed from non-web. If the two have the same font-size, they’d better have the same optical sizing.

The same is true for screen: If a browser shows some text next to a native app, and the two specimens end up being drawn at the same size (visually, to the user, regardless fo what was in the stylesheet’s content or the coding of the native app), then those two had better have the same optical sizing.

The fact that one specimen came from CSS originally but the other specimen didn’t, can’t be relevant here. At the end of the day, type is drawn at a particular size, regardless of how it got there, and it needs to have optical sizing set accordingly.
