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:
http://forums.chiffandfipple.com/styles/subsilver2/theme/stylesheet.css
), 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?
