    Hello all,

    I have an interesting… predicament. I have been using font-face for some time now, but have always had a problem with how “BOLD” it makes the fonts.
    I download and preview the demo.html file that comes in the kit generator by fontsquirrel yet my font NEVER looks the same and I copy and paste the code exactly!

    Take a look at this screenshot here.

    The top is from demo.html (font-squirrels generated font)
    The bottom is from my own index.html (by copying the fonts/script/css into my own files)

    This is all previewed on the exact same browser. firefox


    Any ideas?!?


    How do you bold the fonts? font-weight: bold?


    nope, keeping the font as font-weight:normal. I want to keep it just the standard weight.



    Actually I figured it out. I’m not sure why font-weight:bold was the “default” for this, especially since in the @font-face CSS it clearly states font-weight:normal..

    I had to call… font-weight:normal in particular on the tag/class then all was good.

    Interesting… (font-weight:normal was not declared in the demo.html file… yet it worked that way…)
