It is time to put font family back into Adapting Text. Steve has addressed
the icon substitution issue well. Namely add failure to mark icon fonts to
1.3.1. I have looked at the distribution of font face sizes. Within each
writing system:

   1. Identify a mean character size within the script for that system.
   2. Compute the ratio R of average character size by family to mean
   character size over all families in a representative sample.
   3. Using language experts, establish boundaries that make sense close to
   1 standard deviation from the mean.

Note: Mean +/- 1.2 should do based on the physiology of the human eye.
