DN is rendering in the browser default fonts again

1 year ago from , Visual person, occasional curmudgeon, woodland denizen

This issue happened a few weeks ago and staff needed to kick a tire somewhere. Looks like it might need to be kicked again.

(And the site is forcing me to add a badge to this post. Can't we have the option of no badge at all?)

    I know this wasn't a popular opinion - but I prefer this default font setting.

      Me too. It's more transparent and easier to read.

      I don’t prefer it per se, but it’s at least as good as the previous setting. I’m OK with it.

      Same here, when using San Francisco (default on the devices that matter), the letter spacing needs to be set properly otherwise it reads really poorly. :|

    Why does this have to be a topic of discussion...again!? Just report it to DN.

    I love good default fonts. They look so better in Retina.

    I mean, it's a 404 on a CSS file, so technically your choice of badge isn't wrong...

      Yeah, since I was being forced to pick one, I went with what I thought was appropriate.

        Quite right Ken, but as it's opened up quite a bit of discussion (especially between you and Beth R.) I thought I'd change the icon to just that ;)

    To me, it looks an error... Whitney was always declared into the css file, maybe they forgot to renew the font license. btw now is back = license renewed?
