Automatic font weight at different sizes

The Emmentaler font provides the set of Feta musical glyphs in eight
different sizes; each one tuned for a different staff size. The smaller
the glyph size, the ³heavier² it becomes, so as to match the
relatively thicker staff lines. Recommended glyphs sizes are listed in
the following table:

font name       staff height (pt)       staff height (mm)       use
feta11  11.22   3.9     pocket scores
feta13  12.60   4.4

Should "font name" be replaced with "glyph name"?

Not in my opinion.  The font is feta11 (the font family is feta).  The
staff height is 11.22 pt.  The staff height is 3.9 mm.

Hi Carl, are you sure?
