font-feature-settings has been unprefixed while the newly enabled font-variant-* properties are preferred

Published: | Categories: CSS


The following properties defined in the CSS3 Fonts Module spec are now enabled by default: font-kerning, font-synthesis, font-variant, font-variant-alternates, font-variant-caps, font-variant-east-asian, font-variant-ligatures, font-variant-numeric and font-variant-position.

At the same time, the font-feature-settings and font-language-override properties have been unprefixed, the prefixed properties therefore will be removed in the future. From now on, Web authors are recommended to use the new, comprehensible font-variant-* properties instead of the low-level font-feature-settings property.
