Previewing the font on fontsquirrel.com using a Mac with Safari, it renders correctly, thin is thin, light is light etc. Once I put it on my own website it turns it bold. Ridiculously bold, as in there’s no doubt something is very wrong (since it works correctly on fontsquirrel).
On a PC there are no problems, everything works fine.
I have tried font-weight properties & the text-shadow fix, neither does anything. It remains bold. Yes, it’s light text on dark background. I have stripped my entire CSS file of font-weight properties, still nothing. I have tried other fonts, the same problems apply.
Does anyone have any idea about what I’m doing wrong? Is it something obvious?
I wonder why googling the issue didn’t come up with that result. Is this a common issue? Since I’m usually coding on a PC I’ve never really ran into this before (my client happened to be on a macbook and commented on how bold the font appeared to her).
I simply declared it on my body, underneath font-family. It solved all kinds of issues with different fonts. Weirds me out that it works fine in webkit on a PC without smoothing: antialiased;, but not on a mac.
