Hey all,



Given Medium’s experiment [1] with a font stack that looks like:

font-family: system, -apple-system, …

Where ‘system’ matched a bitmap font apparently still included in Windows installations, do we need to pick a different unprefixed name for this new generic font family?

Thanks,

Alan
