The CSS font-weight is influenced by Linotype numbering system. As you can learn from the wiki, every digit in the number describes different characteristic of the typeface and from this point CSS adopted Lynotype in part... The 100 to 900 system works for some fonts, but fails for other, thus you should always check this in advance before using particular ...
If you haven't already... sign up for the MyFonts.com e-newsletter. While not always in a bundle, there are quite often huge discounts on the fonts showcased in their e-newsletter. I'm talking $200-$500 fonts for under $80. Massive deals. The showcased fonts are often new designs. In fact, an excellent example if you like the font: ...
You can always design in absolute pixels since your monitor and your devices will never have the same pixel density.

At one point, I borrowed the entire Adobe library (2000+) from the newspaper :-\ Ironically, there were so many fonts, and so many looked similar to one another ...
