[css3-fonts] CSS3 Last Call Working Draft published

It's been a long time coming but the CSS3 Fonts specification is now
in the Last Call phase.  The Last Call Working Draft was published
last Thursday:


The primary purpose of this module is to define and extend basic font
selection properties (e.g. font-style, font-weight, font-stretch),
support the use of downloadable fonts via the @font-face rule and
allow the use of advanced font features available in modern font
formats such as OpenType.

Changes since the previous published Feb 2013 Working Draft [1]:

- Moved font load events into a separate spec
- Tightened syntax rules for @font-feature-values rules
- Added grammar productions for @font-face and @font-feature-values rules
- Revised definition of ‘unicode-range’ descriptor
- Detailed font matching of composite faces
- Revised object model interface of CSSFontFeatureValuesRule
- Detailed effect of ‘font-size-adjust’ on relative unit sizes
- Reference the potentially CORS-enabled fetch method defined in HTML5 

Please review the spec and post any comments or feedback you may have
to the www-style mailing list [2].  The end of the Last Call period is
August 22.
