Technically, every size, style, and weight of a typeface is different 
"font". Arial Bold is a different font from just plain Arial. In CSS, 
note that the font selection is for font-family (like, all the the 
Arials), font-size, font-stretch, font-style, font-variant, and 
font-weight. So, if you have the same family (Arial), but several styles 
(bold for a few characters, bold-italic for the rest), you will have a 
"mixed" property report.
