Have a Mac/Windows font question.
Have been using an Arial,Helvetica,Sans-serif font set for a site I’m working on. My client has some concern that the black body font appears a bit light (thin?) and hard to read on a darker background green I am using. Site: (http://www.beanrunnercafe.com/test2/)
When viewed on Windows I can see somewhat what she is talking about (don’t totally agree on legibility) vs when viewed on my Mac (font definitely heavier on Mac). This is true both on IE and Firefox.
I have tried some variations with fonts, but all appear lighter on Windows (I’m viewing using a MAMP install and VirtualBox Windows 7 install). In the course of trying fonts, I tried bolding my navigation menu at the top and noticed uploaded to my MAMP install and viewed through my VirtualBox install – nothing changes (font looks same no matter how I bold (either as links or with style.
So my question is, is there something going on I’m not aware of. Is this just a Windows thing, ???
