A font stretch describes the degree to which a font form is stretched from its normal aspect ratio, which is the original width to height ratio specified for the glyphs in the font.

The FontStretches values correspond to the usWidthClass definition in the OpenType specification. The usWidthClass represents an integer value between 1 and 9. Lower numeric values indicate narrower widths; higher values indicate wider widths.
