Once, I've written a CSS Minifier (shrinks CSS files). There I also
didn't allow "inherit" for individual properties inside the font
shorthand. So I would give the user a good error message here. I don't
think that there are many documents out there, which actually use
"inherit" for individual properties inside the font shorthand.
