Indeed, rtfm

It is most important. It also means if you have a dagger of 0.5 lb you will still do the whole damage even with negative strength (or rapid attack).

This mechanism leads to several ways to produce high damage you can go for high base damage (high strength, heavy weapon), lots of critical hits (light weapon) or fewer critical hits but from a large base (polearms). Also note that you can influence the likelihood of critical hits not only with the weight of your weapons but via abilities power, finesse, subtlety or for bows precision (and by your skill and everything that influences it of course).
