hi all. sorry to ask, have searched forums, searched the google, can't find answer.

 

google fonts rendering horribly in windows. i'm looking everywhere and can't figure it out. i know that pl includes webkit.

 

what am i missing? this is one of those search for weeks whenever you can get to it things. no answer.

 

it's Oswald as a heading font that looks bitmapped and ugly.

 

thank you.

Hi James! Yes, I've looked at that. I've spent many, many hours trying to figure this out. Thing is, that page deals w the problem in the Chrome browser.

 

My problem is the way it renders in WINDOWS. Not just IE, but Windows in general.

 

I can't figure out what it could be!

 

Thanks for your answer!

The only other thing people seem to be hinting to as a solution is making sure clear type is turned on within the windows browsers.

That did make me laugh, not the easiest solution for Microsoft clients. I've just browserstacked your site in IE9 the font doesn't look that bad, better than what I though it would in IE.
