Custom font compatibility on Mac and PC

    I recently got the custom upgrade and noticed that the custom fonts I chose for look very different on a Mac vs PC. The font looks accurate on a Mac, but when I viewed the blog on a PC it’s very different from the font I chose. Is there a way to fix that?

    The blog I need help with is




    The short answer is, font rendering is controlled by the operating system and browser, and therefore not something we can change globally such that you can ensure all your users are seeing the exact same thing.

    If you’re using Windows XP, enabling ClearType might help:

    Or you might try a different font that renders more clearly on both operating systems.

    But for the most part, fonts will look slightly different between Windows and Mac sometimes — that’s normal.

    If you’re seeing two totally different fonts between Mac & PC, can you post a screenshot so we can take a look? Thanks!
