Maybe this isn’t a WordPress question per se, but I see a problem on many blogs including:
where the title “The WordPress Community” is written in a nearly illegible font called “Radioactive” (probably a free font I found online).
As far as I can tell the issue is with Safari (shows normally in Firefox), but I’ve gone to various blogs where sometimes an entire page is rendered with this particular font.
I have 2 questions:
1) I’m new to CSS (and I realize Safari isn’t the greatest browser). How can I be careful with my OWN css and make sure a proper font wll be displayed, not some random illegible font? Are there extra protections I can take to safeguard against font wierdness — even in uncompliant browsers? After seeing the same goofy font again and again I now realize it’s not just bad design, but the first couple of times I thought it was someone trying to be “artsy”.
2) I’ve been all over the Safari preferences but find nothing that might trigger the “Radioactive” font. (I do not have a default CSS as far as I know). Aside from the obvious solution of deleting this font from my computer (yes, it occured to me 😉 ), can I convince Safari to choose a more legible font when it messes up?
- The topic ‘illegible font shows in Safari (and can I make Safari stop using THAT font)’ is closed to new replies.
