In the past I’ve displayed some serious animosity towards the CSS
font shorthand property, so I feel I should make up for it. After all, the
font shorthand property was just minding its own business, trying to save developers some lines of code, and I come along and declare it an outcast. So, although I still don’t agree with ever using
font shorthand, I do think it’s important that CSS developers understand how it works.
So to make up for my former
font shorthand hostilities, I’ve prepared a printable cheat sheet that you can download and hang next to your computer, which will come in handy in case you decide to use this property yourself, or are forced use it in a stylesheet from an inherited project.
