How accurately does your font renderer display type specified in points? Ideally, there should be a gradual transition between sizes, but trade-offs may be made between accuracy and processing/storage requirements for display fonts. Also, there are problems with character placement on non-true-color, non-anti-aliased displays with low pixel densities.
You can specify font start size, end size, and size increments in 0.1 points. Maximum font size is 72 points. Note that too many sizes will delay rendering of the samples.
When specifying fonts, type names as they appear in font selection boxes in your applications. Quotes are unnecessary. Unknown fonts should be rendered in sans-serif; failure to do so is browser error.
