Implementing system fonts on Booking.com — A lesson learned.

I think your post has great info about working around what I would consider to be an Apple bug (not an IE/Edge bug). Thank you for that.

I am frustrated that Apple opted to go with a proprietary approach when CSS has offered the ability to access system fonts since 1998 (specifically using the keywords `caption`, `icon`, `menu`, `message-box`, `small-caption`, and `status-bar`): https://www.w3.org/TR/css-fonts-3/#font-prop

More frustrating is that when Apple brought this up in 2015 in the CSS working group and somebody noted there were already existing keywords, any effort to add more keywords or adjust their implementation died with the Apple rep’s response (not a bad response, it just did not move anything forward).

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
