Font weight issues

  • # May 21, 2013 at 7:18 am

    I’m implementing Open Sans on a website via Google Web Fonts, with the body of the text set at 300, so lighter than ‘normal’, which looks fine.

    It has been tested on various displays, OSs, browsers etc. but I have ran into one instance where the font appears much too light.
    The DPPI is the same as other displays that render the font readable.

    Is there a solution or any way to detect why this instance is rendering the font much too light?

    And that instance is?…..

    Firefox, Windows XP, Samsung B2430 display

    However, the exact same setup as above works elsewhere (there are two in the office, only one renders poorly)

    Sounds like a monitor color calibration issue more than anything else.
