The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Fonts 
Module Level 4


Fonts 4 builds on Fonts 3 (downloadable fonts with @font-face, OpenType 
features), adding support for Variable fonts and styling Color fonts.

We are particularly interested in feedback on Font Variation Properties:

on changes to font-weight and font-stretch, which are extended to 
support variable fonts:

and on support for restyling Color fonts (overriding the colors baked 
into the font):

Please note that some sections, shared with Fonts 3, are in the course 
of being ported over. Inline issues are used to indicate where that has 
not yet happened. We are also porting over the syntax sections to refer 
to CSS Syntax 3 rather than CSS 2.1, and converting the spec from the 
old source format to Bikeshed.

For clarity, there is a new section on Font Taxonomy:

Please review the draft, filing any issues in the GitHub repository at
with a css-fonts-4 tag.

For the CSS WG,
Chris Lilley, W3C
