As far as I can tell from http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/fonts.html#font-shorthand the "font" shorthand 
does not allow to use the variant after the font-family. 

Hence 
font: 10pt Helvetica, sans-serif normal;
is being parsed as if "sans-serif normal" were a font-family, which is *not* a generic family.
