The percentage numbers come from the Companion, p 414.

These numbers do seem to be some kind of convention; I see them in articles about the CSS 3 font-stretch property.

But they can go, for sure.

Hello Karl & Jim,

Sorry for the @dmn{}, in French we have it, after all this is a unit,
isn't it :


I will remove this @dmn{} as well as restoring the cmss/cmtt. cmr is
still there, only cmss & cmtt were removed, maybe to encourage the
switch to Latin Modern --- I don't know, I am not the one who removed them.

The percents were added by Jim in r361, see

Personnally, I don't think that it was a bad idea, because anyway the
current text says that this is just informative, and not followed by all

The cmss & cmtt were removed by Jim in r362, see

I agree with you Karl that  for consistency cmss & cmtt should be restored.

Jim added them.
