[Pro] How is this paragraph text styled?

I’m trying to duplicate the paragraph text of this website’s home page but I can’t figure out exactly what the designer did. It appears to be standard Helvetica, but it’s really light. I tried playing around with font-style and font-weight, but I can’t get it that light.

Does anyone know how to achieve this effect?

Thanks!

if you zoom the text, you’ll see that it does not zoom. I’m not sure that
it even qualifies as “text”.

If you inspect the page code with your browser’s developer tools (Safari
control-click Inspect Element) reveals that it is html5’s Canvas element
and something called “cufon” (custom font). Essentially Cufon acts as a web
interface to create an a JavaScript version of your font.

Whatever the font, it’s not standard Helvetica. If you can find a similar
font at Googlefont or Squirrelfont, you should use that.

Thanks Ernie.

The code looked a little weird to me so thanks for clarifying what they did. If you select the text, it’s even stranger—like little blocks of text instead of one continuous election.
