No, the mistake was mine. I'll make sure it gets into the next version of
the Interaction CSS Editor (I have actually already repaired it).

I assume the spec doesn't really require that the generic families (or
names without a space) NOT to be quoted? Not that it is a problem, the
Interaction CSS editor won't quote unless the name has a space. However, I
wouldn't be surprised if some other developers figured they could save
themselves a few lines by writing all font names quoted.
