Glen, you're just getting an unintended misfire in the cadence. Another 
way to smooth out that rough idle could be: 

“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’ vs 
'application/pdf'), otherwise, this element is ignored.”

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.”

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.).
