My Flex app is built under Vista and IE 7. It looks OK but
when run under Safari on the Mac the text doesn't look as nice -
soft or not as clear or something. Should I define the font for
each text area, text input and lables etc? At present I'm just
leaving it on the default.
Now remember that the default is device fonts. These are not
embedded. It just takes whatever font is on your system and uses
it. If you don't have that exact font, it'll find a substitute. Now
if you embed the font, it'll have the outlines for each letter, and
they may display better.
