font-synthesis property CSS Reference

Definition and Usage

This property controls whether user agents are allowed to synthesize bold or oblique font faces when a font family lacks bold or italic faces. If 'weight' is not specified, user agents must not synthesize bold faces and if 'style' is not specified user agents must not synthesize italic faces. A value of 'none' disallows all synthetic faces.
