Hello ,

Who is the current maintainer of

Missing characters and glyphs

I ask because the section

Selecting Glyph Variants

could usefully add something about the CSS3 font-variant-alternates property

Suggested text

The CSS3 font-variant-alternates property allows CSS stylesheets to request display of a particular glyph variant, using the character-variant value, which in turn refers to the OpenType cv feature. This is primarily useful with downloadable fonts, as the values are font specific.
