I use the Google Font 'Open Sans' on my website.
I noticed the incorrect font weight was being displayed for certain links. My regular text has a font-weight of 300, while my links have a font-weight of 400. However, all the links look the same as the regular text.
I navigated to the Google Fonts website:
and noticed something interesting.
- On Windows, on Google Chrome, the Light 300 and Normal 400 versions are identical.
- On Windows, on Firefox, IE, and Safari they are not.
- On Ubuntu, on Google Chrome, they are not.
The issue seems to be isolated to Google Chrome (latest version) and Windows (version 8.0).
My fonts are loaded onto my website using a link in the header.
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
However, the issue is not isolated to my website, as the Google Fonts site itself shows the same issue.
I wanted to ask for someone's help with this issue. I have read online about other issues with Google Fonts, such as smoothness, but nothing on font-weight.
