font-stretch

Hello.

I see there is a W3C CSS2 specification for font-stretch property. I
also see that no browser supports it. Why is that?

And is there a work around for this? I don't want to use an image for
such a job if it's possible.

Thanks

You should ask the browser manufacturers.
And is there a work around for this?
Try e.g. to select a condensed font using the font-family property.

There are a number of features in CSS 2 which were never implemented.
These were dropped in CSS 2.1, so perhaps no browser maker felt the need
to add them.

We might also ask the people who wrote the CSS 2.0 specification. The
font-stretch property would be fairly useless even if implemented. And
we haven't got decent implementations of font-style, font-variant, or
font-weight in popular browsers, so why did they bother adding
font-stretch in CSS 2.0 (just to be taken out in CSS 2.1)?
