Hello everyone,

At yesterday's meeting it was asked what problems might be expected
for Option H [1] from overriding font family. So far we know icon
fonts  disappear.

James has shared an elegant technique to address this problem. On
Issue 78 he wrote [2],

We use role="img" on the element which has our icon fonts. This seems
like a good idea as it lets us write our font replacement selector to
exclude them i.e.

*:not([role="img"]) {
font-family: Comic Sans MS, Georgia,'Times New Roman',serif;

I have added that to the Testabilty section of the Wiki page [3].

Kindest Regards,
