"\[FAMILY-LIST] \[STYLE-OPTIONS] \[SIZE] \[VARIATIONS]",

where FAMILY-LIST is a comma-separated list of families optionally terminated by a comma, STYLE_OPTIONS is a whitespace-separated list of words where each word describes one of style, variant, weight, stretch, or gravity, and SIZE is a decimal number (size in points) or optionally followed by the unit modifier "px" for absolute size. VARIATIONS is a comma-separated list of font variation specifications of the form "\ axis=value" (the = sign is optional).

The following words are understood as styles: "Normal", "Roman", "Oblique", "Italic".

The following words are understood as variants: "Small-Caps".

The following words are understood as weights: "Thin", "Ultra-Light", "Extra-Light", "Light", "Semi-Light", "Demi-Light", "Book", "Regular", "Medium", "Semi-Bold", "Demi-Bold", "Bold", "Ultra-Bold", "Extra-Bold", "Heavy", "Black", "Ultra-Black", "Extra-Black".

The following words are understood as gravity values: "Not-Rotated", "South", "Upside-Down", "North", "Rotated-Left", "East", "Rotated-Right", "West".

Any one of the options may be absent. If FAMILY-LIST is absent, then the family_name field of the resulting font description will be initialized to null. If STYLE-OPTIONS is missing, then all style options will be set to the default values. If SIZE is missing, the size in the resulting font description will be set to 0.
