On this site: http://proud.dk/
I’m using text-transform: bold for the headings in the right sidebar. It looks fine in Firefox, but it looks quite strange in Chrome, where the letters seem to become stretched horizontally. Any ideas what’s causing this?
bold isn’t a valid option for that.
Why not font-style?
Sorry. I actually used font-weight. You think font-style would make a difference?
Sorry, I was on my phone, I meant font-weight (damn auto-correct).
Anyway….’looks odd’ is a bit vague…it looks fine to me. I’m not fan of Open Sans though.
You have to remember that font-weight:bold is the broswers ‘best guess’, it’s no substitute for an actual bold font
