How to apply "Slate Pro Light" font using CSS?



Would you mind telling me how to apply "Slate Pro Light" font using CSS? I haven't found any solution concerning selecting the 'Light' variation of Slate Pro.


Thank you.

Re: How to apply "Slate Pro Light" font using CSS?

I generally use the following font-family CSS definition on my html and body elements:


font-family: "Slate Pro", Slate, "Myriad Pro", "BBAlpha Sans", Helvetica;

Potentially adding "Slate Pro Light" should do the trick; alternatively you could leverage the font-weight property when you need a lighter setting:


font-weight: normal|bold|bolder|lighter|number|initial|inherit;

In this case, lighter, might do the trick?
