    Hello Adobe-Team,

    InDesign tagged text is inconsistent in it's use, which produces errors while using it. For example, I would expect that I can set the axis values of a variable font with two axis in <cTypeface> like this:
    <cTypeface:Weight-612.000 Width-126.000>
    But this does not work. When I export the tagged text with custom settings to the axis I get the following:
    <cTypeface:Weight-612.000Condensed Width-126.000>
    It looks like InDesign takes one name of an axis out of the name table, in this case 'Condensed' for the axis 'Width'. But this is not necessary for the 'Weight' axis. This is kind of inconsistent.

    A different example with only one weight axis, I would expect this:
    <cTypeface:Weight-666.000> (which does not work)
    but working InDesign tagged text in fact looks like this:
    <cTypeface:Thin-666.000>

    Thanks a lot for your help on this.
    BTW: I love that InDesign supports variable fonts, now.

    Awesome! I am looking forward to see the support for variable font in InDesign in the future.
