Okay, so in your example of DejaVu, we would have:
- font family: DejaVu Sans Condensed
- font style/subfamily: Bold
- preferred font family: DejaVu Sans
- preferred font style/subfamily: Condensed Bold

A well behaved font selector would then display the font as « DejaVu Sans » and
in the style selector, it would propose the « Condensed Bold » style (along the
« Bold », « Italic »,... styles).

Am I right ?

Now, in my case:
- font family: Nafees Web Naskh
- font style/subfamily: Regular (only one style is provided)
- preferred font family: Nafees
- preferred font style/subfamily: Regular

Those are the values fontforge shows me.

Which means that a well behaved font selector would display the font as «
Nafees » and in the style selector, it would propose the « Regular » style.

That's not really helpful as other Nafees fonts (for example the Nafees
Nastaleeq font) have the same preferred family and preferred style.

So, even a well behaved font selector would have troubles with them :-/

Did I get all this right ?

(BTW, thanks a lot for your time and explanations :)
