Thanks for the clarification.  

 

So "Specifies the name of the font if the document data is in a format
that does not have inherent font information (e.g., 'text/plain'),
otherwise, this element is ignored."

 

Would be

 

"Specifies the name of the font ("Arial", "Courier", etc.) if the
document data is in a format that does not have inherent font
information for the content type (e.g., 'text/plain'), otherwise, this
element is ignored."

 

Or

 

"Specifies the name of the font ("Arial", "Courier", etc.) if the
document data is in a format  (e.g., 'text/plain')  that does not have
inherent font information, otherwise, this element is ignored."

 

 

Glen

	I don't think of Font Name as text/plain; I think of Arial,
Courier, Times New Roman as Font Names.   I believe the """Font Name"""
is supposed to be based on IANA MIME Media Types.  For example
'text/plain'.   I am not sure "media type" is correct either but I
believe IANA is using it to mean "content type" or "format type"

 

I think you are just a misreading the spec - probably this just needs
some wording changes to avoid confusion.

 

The FontNameRequested element is only used for formats like
"text/plain".  The value is a font name ("Arial", "Courier", etc.).
