Yes, WFL can only tell you about the fonts it tries to load, and knows nothing about local fonts. However this will hopefully change sooner or later – there is a note in the CSS Font Loading Module Draft saying that a future version should handle local fonts too.
I agree about font metrics. I'd like to make a better measure tool that reads a font file and parses the OpenType tables for the exact metrics.
Thanks for the heads up! I haven't had time to test on Windows yet, but Chrome acts weird (and different) on Mac and Android too. Rounding values to ¼ pixels should have mitigated this; I will see what more can be done. At the moment Firefox is the only browser I know with precise subpixel rendering.
Thanks for the feedback!
Unfortunately there is no way to know beforehand in the CSS if the specified font will be successfully loaded. I recommend loading web fonts using the Web Font Loader that sets classes on the body so you can target multiple fonts.
I use The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th Edition.
I can see a few reasons for this:
