Fonts in Platform 1.3.2 theme - pixelization of Courier (3 posts)

    I love the Platform theme by PageLines -- it's perfect for CSS-phobic people like me! I just have one problem with choosing a font:

    The theme provides a dropdown menu of fonts, and has labeled them "Web Friendly" and "Google Fonts" as appropriate.
    I chose Courier for the headers and Trebuchet MS for the body text, both of which are labeled "Web Friendly."
    The site looks fine viewed in Google Chrome, but when I view it in Explorer or FireFox the Courier text is pixelated. (The Trebuchet, however, looks fine.)

    My site is courtneydruz.com

    Whats the problem? Out of the choices offered, I really prefer Courier (even though I can make others work right in the header on all browsers) and I don't want to mess wish CSS.

    BTW I signed up for the free two-font trial of Typekit and entered the script in the form provided by the Platform template, but I'm assuming it won't work without the WordPress upgrade which I don't have.

    Anyone? Please look at my site and you'll see what I mean-- it's good in Google Chrome, but messes up font in Firefox and Explorer.

    someone PLEASE answer this! Platform Theme, Courier font pixelated in some browsers, good in others-- on the SAME computer (which has Courier installed) -- in fact it's supposed to subsitute to Verdana if Courier is missing anyway. So why is it pixelated in Firefox and Explorer??!!
