@font-feature-values

The @font-feature-values CSS at-rule lets you use a common name in the font-variant-alternates property for features activated differently in OpenType. This can help simplify your CSS when using multiple fonts.

The @font-feature-values at-rule may be used either at the top level of your CSS or inside any CSS conditional-group at-rule.

Syntax

Feature value blocks

@swash
Specifies a feature name that will work with the swash() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. A swash feature value definition allows only one value: ident1: 2 is valid, but ident2: 2 4 isn't.
@annotation
Specifies a feature name that will work with the annotation() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. An annotation feature value definition allows only one value: ident1: 2 is valid, but ident2: 2 4 isn't.
@ornaments
Specifies a feature name that will work with the ornaments() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. An ornaments feature value definition allows only one value: ident1: 2 is valid, but ident2: 2 4 isn't.
@stylistic
Specifies a feature name that will work with the stylistic() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. A stylistic feature value definition allows only one value: ident1: 2 is valid, but ident2: 2 4 isn't.
@styleset
Specifies a feature name that will work with the styleset() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. A styleset feature value definition allows an unlimited number of values: ident1: 2 4 12 1 maps to the OpenType values ss02, ss04, ss12, and ss01. Note that values higher than 99 are valid, but don't map to any OpenType values and are ignored.
@character-variant
Specifies a feature name that will work with the character-variant() functional notation of font-variant-alternates. A character-variant feature value definition allows either one or two values: ident1: 3 maps to cv03=1, and ident2: 2 4 maps to cv02=4, but ident2: 2 4 5 is invalid.

<feature-value-block-list> = <feature-value-block>+

where
<feature-value-block> = <feature-type> '{' <feature-value-declaration-list> '}'

where
<feature-type> = @stylistic | @historical-forms | @styleset | @character-variant | @swash | @ornaments | @annotation
<feature-value-declaration-list> = <feature-value-declaration>

where
<feature-value-declaration> = <custom-ident>: <integer>+;

}

/* At-rule for "nice-style" in Font Two */
@font-feature-values Font Two {
  @styleset {
