    Default terrible font choice

    Granted, the font looks a little more crisp in IE & Firefox, but, in Chrome, this font looks horrible. At first, I thought (hoped) that only one news story was accidentally formatted with this font. Then, I noticed the entire site is using it.

    Horrible choice. Just horrible. Please find another font & weight that is easy on the eyes. Or, give us a choice to change the font site-wide ourselves without using browser extensions. (Does this option already exist?)

    That's not our font. Try clearing your cache and cookies for me?

    I dumped everything - including cache - back to "the beginning of time" in Chrome. Still looking at this font. (shrugs)

    Thanks for looking into it.

    The font used for the blog posts are:

    Code:
    "Helvetica Neue",helvetica,Arial,sans-serif
    in that order. My guess is that you have a bad version of "Helvetica Neue" or helvetica installed on your computer. You can try uninstalling one or both of those fonts and then it will use arial. Chrome is known to render certain fonts poorly (which google is working on a fix).

    Thank you! I did have to install Helvetica Neue off some free site the other day. Fixed now. Much appreciated!
