It’s not working for me Dave (Safari 8)

(I’ll try posting a grab … seeing as I can edit the post, I may have to add another after it fails!)

Interestingly, it work fine in Safari on iOS8

Ho hum … well you can see the link.

Anyone know how to embed an image in a post?

So what OS and Safari version are you using?

My example doesn’t use any extra code to defeat the bug but I will add some later.

The markdown code to include an image looks like this

![alt text](/path/to/img.jpg "Title")

So your example would be

I’m on 10.10.1 (now 10.10.2beta) and Safari 8.0.2. I shall check on standard 10.9 and 10.10 installations tomorrow (big film night now … have to watch Once Upon a Time in America with my son. I’m under orders. :slight_smile: )

I’ve been a part of the Appleseed program for a number of years, hence the 10.2 beta. We used to have to sign nda’s but these days, who cares? Anyway … good news is, when I submit a bug report, I know that an engineer on the Safari team will look at it. :slight_smile: So give me all you have.

Maybe that is the price you pay?

Enjoy the movie and when you get a minute try my example again - http://deltadesign.co/FW7Test/font-test.html

That fixes it.

(The issue is still present on older OS’s; MacOS 10.9.5 and 10.10.1)

body { -webkit-font-smoothing: subpixel-antialiased; }

This works when I put it in 'After '.

So just removing the ‘html’ reference from your previous post Dave.

I’ve read a little bit about this online. It seems it’s particularly noticeable when it is reversed type (white on black) which is what I’m using, but it seems it’s a bad idea to systematically replace sub pixel rendering with antialiasing, because sub pixel is sharper for normal use.

The Safari bug appeared in 6.0. So that’s not too good is it.

You should really put it in before end so that is one of the last style declarations on the page.

I also added backface visibility: hidden on my page

Thanks Dave.

I put it into and it works as you say … I think I’m beginning to understand a little bit.

What does the backface code do? From what I can understand, it handles a 3D aspect?

The down side … is that I find that my iPad on iOS8 is not displaying the fonts well and yet my old iPhone4 running iOS7, is displaying them perfectly (and beautifully).

This is such a minefield, I think I can see why diverse font use on the web is so limited, which is such a shame and so unnecessary. Surely the might of Apple, MS and Google can manage to work this out. I mean … how hard can it be? :slight_smile:

For those coming to this the complete style declaration is

	-webkit-backface-visibility: hidden;

And it is there as an optional workaround to the webkit animation rendering bug.

And yes it does relate to 3D transforms in its normal use case. It just so happens it helps prevent the font rendering issues that you can get in Safari.
