A font weight describes the relative weight of a font, in terms of the lightness or heaviness of the strokes. Weight differences are generally differentiated by an increased stroke or thickness that is associated with a given character in a font, as compared to a "normal" character from that same font.
The values correspond to the usWeightClass definition in the OpenType specification. The usWeightClass represents an integer value between 1 and 999. Lower values indicate lighter weights; higher values indicate heavier weights.
For more information about the OpenType usWeightClass value, see the "Font File Tables" section of the OpenType specification.
