Fonts

Another useful feature of CSS are @font-faces, which allow you to provide your own fonts.
There are only seven different properties a @font-face rule accepts.

Font Family & Source Files

The font family specifies a name which is later used to reference the font within other rules. The source files are basically relative or absolute paths pointing to a valid font file. Both are required to get a valid font face rendered. Base64 font file is also supported. Just make sure you supply the mime type for the font.

Font Properties

In addition to the required parameters, each font face accepts five other properties to customize the font. They all are standard CSS properties:

  • fontVariant
  • fontStretch
  • fontWeight
  • fontStyle
  • unicodeRange
  • localAlias - String or Array<String> - Provides way to reference locally installed system fonts by name, if available.
