Hello,

CSS2.1 and CSS2.2 have this sentence:

"
The 'medium' value is the user's preferred font size and is used as the 
reference middle value.
"

15.7 Font size: the 'font-size' property
https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/fonts.html#font-size-props
https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS22/fonts.html#font-size-props

I am convinced that a lot of web authors do not know this.

Now, in CSS3 and CSS4, such sentence was removed:

https://www.w3.org/TR/css-fonts-3/#font-size-prop

https://drafts.csswg.org/css-fonts/#font-size-prop

https://www.w3.org/TR/css-fonts-4/#font-size-prop

I think it should be reinstated.

Gérard
