Hi Suzy,

 

have you tried the webkit css option. Check out - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/10953037/google-webfonts-render-choppy-in-chrome-on-windows


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

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.

      Hi guys!
      I'm using the following typography configuration in Pagelines Settings:
      <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans" rel="stylesheet">
      font-family: 'Open Sans', sans-serif;
      But Lato is still being loaded according to Google Page Speed. Do you know how I can prevent Lato from being loaded if I'm not using it?
      Thanks

      I use Adobe's Fonts.com for specific branded fonts for our site, and it's working nicely on Chrome and Firefox. However, the fonts all default in Safari. Is there anything I need to look at?

      I'm currently staging a site: http://www.staging1.w-edigest.org/?page_id=84&preview=true
      I couldn't get the fonts to 'take' on the Site Settings > Typography page and then found this message in the Google developer view: Font from origin 'http://www.w-edigest.org' has been blocked from loading by Cross-Origin Resource Sharing policy: No 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header is present on the requested resource. Origin 'http://www.staging1.w-edigest.org' is therefore not allowed access.
      How & where do I fix this? 
       
      Thank you!

      Hello,
       
      I have an icon font that I have purchased from Fontastic and I was wondering if I can install this in DMS? I am able to generate the icon font in Fontastic and can set character mapping. Each icon has it's own class (e.g. icon-edit-comment).
       
      Is there a tutorial that I can follow on how to do this? I tried the approach in adding a [CHILD THEME] folder with a fonts folder inside but I was unable to get anything to work.
       
      Any help / advice would be great.
       
      Thanks,
