Neurocracy is a joint project between myself and my good friend Joannes. It aims to be equal parts interactive fiction and cautionary tale about the intersection of surveillance capitalism, big data, and authoritarianism.

line-gap-override, ascent-override and descent-override CSS properties

[T]he line-gap-override, ascent-override and descent-override CSS properties […] allow developers more control over how fonts are displayed. The following snippet shows just how useful these properties are when using a local fallback font:

Code language: CSS

@font-face {
  font-family: web-font;
  src: url("<https://example.com/font.woff>");
}
 
@font-face {
  font-family: local-font;
  src: local(Local Font);
  ascent-override: 90%;
  descent-override: 110%;
  line-gap-override: 120%;
}

These […] properties help to reduce layout shift when fonts are loading, as developers can better match the intricacies of a local font with a web font. They work alongside the size-adjust property[.]
