The tag has more questions tagged to it, than its competitor . While there is no mention of property on the w3.org docs; I think these both should be merged, and font-weight should replace the older font-bold tag completely.

font-weight is a CSS property while "font bold" seems to be a way of saying "this question is about the use of bold in a font". Many of the questions tagged are decidedly not about CSS either, so I don't think the two tags are competing in any way.

The excerpt that you originally gave to the tag doesn't make sense either:

The font-weight property selects the weight of the font. Tag to be used with CSS property font-weight or font-bold.

There is no such CSS property as font-bold.

That said, neither tag seems overly useful (and doesn't seem legitimately useful as a proper tag at all). I (well, Wesley and I) decided to remove them both instead. is enough in most cases.

I think we're stepping on eachother's toes with edits, I was removing font-weight from the two questions. I don't think we need either one, especially with total 16 questions. Thoughts? If you agree I will remove them all myself. –  Wesley Murch Feb 28 '13 at 15:50
    
@Wesley Murch: 30 questions total actually - I had just removed [font-bold] from a handful of them. Personally I don't like [font-size] either and would very much rather have neither [font-size], [font-weight] nor any of the other specific CSS font properties, nor [font-bold], and just have [fonts]. Considering the low use of these specific tags, though, I suppose there's no harm in doing away with them for now. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 28 '13 at 15:55
    
I'm gonna go ahead and retag/untag then, if the tag hasn't picked up steam by now it never will, might as well nip it in the bud. –  Wesley Murch Feb 28 '13 at 15:56
    
@Wesley Murch: Cool, thanks for your help! –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 28 '13 at 15:57
    
They're gone, [status-completed]. –  Wesley Murch Feb 28 '13 at 16:15
    
@Wesley Murch: More like declined, since the OP is asking to make them synonyms whereas we got rid of them entirely. –  BoltClock's a Unicorn Feb 28 '13 at 16:19

They're both merged into the trash can. –  Wesley Murch Feb 28 '13 at 16:20
