Hello public-svg-wg,

Convey font-family parsing result to CSS WG

This has been done

and was discussed at the CSS telcon on Wednesday. I'm happy to say that as a result, the CSS 2.1 issue is closed and both CSS and SVG WGs agree on the resolution.

The minutes record the resolution as

    RESOLVED: font-family names are ident+ or quoted strings 
    (CSS2.1 Issue 114)


To reflect this I have edited SVG 1.1F2 text.html and changes.html to add the following sentence to the description of the font-family property:

"Unless the family name corresponds to a CSS IDENT, it must be quoted."
