    Dears,

    using minimatica theme from onedesigns.com
    I got a problem with all the é è à ç in all pages : they appear as if a little bit bolded, any idea where this comes from ? I thought of the database being utf8 unicode instead of utf 8 general ... do you think that might be the problem ?
    thanks for your help

  2. It's nothing to do with WordPress or the database -- unfortunately, the designer chose to use a font that only includes the basic ASCII characters. When that happens, the browser looks for the missing characters in the default sans-serif face for your system, which is a heavier weight.

    Use a font which includes those characters.

    The stylesheet of your theme.

    Yes that's it. You should use a font people are likely to have on their systems, or look up how to use web fonts.
