With the upgrade came a kind of squished font, as viewed on Firefox and XP. Is anyone else experiencing this? I'll take a screenshot and add it to the post in a minute.

Here's the example. It's readable, but feels a bit squished together horizontally.

Taking a peek at the stylesheet (
Code:

), it looks like the body text is specified as
Code:
"Lucida Grande", "Verdana", Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif
. Your browser should work down the list in order, using the first match it finds, and in the end use any san serif font your system has.

Ah. I started to read that thread, but I appear to have stopped just before the subject of font came up!

Thanks. At least I'm not the only one!

I suppose if messing with style sheets isn't an option, an alternative would be to install one of the fonts called for by the forum? Would something that simple work?

Hehehe. I'll reserve it as a last resort.
