    I can see it’s an i – I think this is just a normal font issue, where some people find a font easier to read than others.

    In every page of my site when I write “i” in bold it seems an “l”
    e.g. at
    distribution and training
    dlstrlbutlon and trlnlng

    I use oly default (font, point size, …)

    I can tell it’s an I in all cases. I can also see that people might think it’s an L. But like I said, it’s a font-choice issue. It doesn’t look much different when not bolded.

    I use default font. I notify you simply because I think it’s a problem.

    In regard of accessibility this is indeed critical: Bold i is difficult to distinguish from l. This can be clearly seen when bold i is compared to normal i and e.g. i in HTML anchors (see menu). The latter are easy to read compared to bold i in the text.

    Checked with Firefox 49.2 on a 1400×1050 TFT monitor. Font according to FF is LibreFranklin-ExtraBold.


    Sorry, but why is this issue “resolved”? The “l” instead of “i” is still there. Checked on several operating systems, screens and browsers in default zoom status.
    Curious: in FF with “Strg +” / one step bigger it becomes a correct and readable “i” AND with “Strg -” / one step smaller as well.

    It’s resolved because the original poster resolved it. If you need support then per the forum welcome please post your own topic.
