What's the most accessible way of marking up a star rating?
For example, my current HTML5 code is just:
<span class="rating">★★★⯪☆</span>
That's 3 full stars, 1 half star, 1 empty star.
I want a screen reader to say "three and a half stars out of five".

In HTML5, can you load a base64 encoded font from within a style attribute?

Eg <span style="@font-face{src:url(data:application/font-woff2;charset=utf-8;base64,......

I *know* this is a stupid idea. But I'd like to know if it is possible.

Is this possible / sensible / useful?

Spent the day tidying my home office.
This is how it looks now.
Significantly better. Still a *little* more to do…

Yes. This is how we measure file size on the computers.

One of the problems with online grocery shopping is that I see something like. "Carrot & Cumin waffles" & think "that's *exactly* the kind of vegan hipster stuff that I'd love to eat."
Then, when it arrives, I can't help but wonder what this will do to my algorithmic suggestions.
