Clause A.2

Add the following structures:

<!-- Description properties -->
<!ELEMENT typefaceclass (glbname)>
<!ELEMENT usagetype (glbname)>

NOTE 1 Typeface Class specifies a classification of typefaces. Usage Type specifies application field (text, handwritten, decorative, symbol) of a font. Serif Style specifies a shape (cove, normal sans, rounded, no classification) of serif for a font.
