Forum Formatting Glitch - Inline Italics

May 10, 2012 9:17 AM

Using IE9 whenever I embed italicized words in a sentence I see them jam against the following word.

 

Do these words seem spaced properly to you or do the italicized words seem jammed against the words that follow?

This is a basic formatting glitch - possibly having to do with the font choice - that should never be seen in this millenium from a company that actually does graphics and even makes fonts.

 

Here's a screen grab of what I see:

    Looks Fine for me. I use MacBook Pro 17", and SeaMonkey/FireFox.

    Use Verdana?

    No, what I meant is that it's up to Adobe/Jive to take such a simple step as changing the default typeface to Verdana. But of course this will never happen...

    Both of you:  Mac or PC, and which browser?

     

    I'm on IE9 on Windows.

    My "perfectly fine" comment was when using Waterfox 12 on Windows 7.

     

    Since you are on IE9, I opened this topic with IE9: it looks the same awful way as your initial screenshot.

     

    Just another reason not to use IE...

     

    (To explain my last comment above: I do web application development, among other things.  I develop & test exclusively on Firefox/Waterfox.  One of the users of my software insists on using IE; naturally nothing works as expected.  I would have to develop everything twice if it should work on both browser types.  I do actually have some code in place for the most important parts:

    if (MSIE)... else...;

    But it's simply impossible to do that for every line of the code!)

    Pat, it seems that you are seeing a different font in your first post. Look at your lowercase "L" that might be mistaken for an uppercase" I"...

    First I need to say that on another machine with Firefox 12 on Windows XP, I see the same font problem as Noel does.  I don't know why I do not see it on this Windows 7 computer.

     

    Then, maybe someone can explain this to me: I thought that I could only see fonts on websites if these fonts are actually installed on my computer.  That's why (I thought) a web designer specifies a series of choice fonts or families in the font or style tag.

     

    Is that not so any more?  Where does that Adobe Clean font coming from?  I certainly do not have it installed on any of my systems.
