Precisely match locally installed fonts by PostScript name or full font name, when used in a local() value to a src: descriptor in a @font-face declaration. This means, you can precisely and uniquely select local fonts by specifying their PostScript name or full font name. Previously Blink had implemented this incorrectly and was using the specified font name to perform a family match.


Preferring local fonts when a suitable local copy is available avoids network round trips.
