    The “Weight” field should represent the true typographic weight the font. Choose the value provided in the dropdown list that best matches the design of the font, but do not use the “UltraLight”, “Thin” or “ExtraLight” values. Make sure that the numeric weight value is no less than 250 and not greater than 900. Preferably use numerical weights in steps of 100 or 50.
