alan little’s weblog

public service announcement

8th October 2003 permanent link

I've noticed that the font I use for my weblog (which I specify in my stylesheet as Garamond or Georgia) looks great in Safari, and just-about-readable-but-spidery-&-nasty in everything else (where “everything else” means, to a first approximation, Internet Explorer and Mozilla). Now, despite the the fact that I know everybody would be much happier if they bought Macs and used Safari, I also know the world is unlikely to change to any significant degree just to suit my wishes & beliefs. 90% of the people reading are using Internet Explorer, and I will be doing some experimentation to find a font that looks ok for them too.
