Fallback fonts

CSS has a nifty feature when specifying a font family called a fallback font. Fallback fonts are used if the first font you specify is unavailable. If your second-choice font is not available, it tries the third one and so on. But not all fonts are the same. Each one comes with its own style, characters, and rendering options.

There is a new CSS3 property that can perform the font-size-adjust as you want it when using multiple font. This property has been introduced with CSS Text Module 3.

You can use the font-size-adjust property to control the size of the text more accurately in cases where the first font selected is not available, and thereby improve the appearance of the alternative font.
