Sometimes I use web fonts with more than just normal and bold weights. It can be tricky to remember all the CSS font-weight values between 100 and 900. 400 means "normal", right? (Yes.)
I find these SASS variables helpful:
$hairline-weight: 100; $thin-weight: 200; $light-weight: 300; $normal-weight: 400; $medium-weight: 500; $semibold-weight: 600; $bold-weight: 700; $xbold-weight: 800; $black-weight: 900;
Here's a Gist with some handy synonyms and a few usage examples.
This font-smoothing mixin by Maximilian Hoffmann is another good one (to be used judiciously, of course).
Got any helpful tips?
P.S. First post—hi, everyone!
