- Ao3 Weirdness, anyone notice this?
- June 8th, 2012
So do the italics on AO3 look strange to anyone else recently? Like, the spacing is off and some letters look like they're on top of each other and others are too far apart? I use the default skin, but it happens with all the others that use whatever sans serif font they use (Arial? I don't know my fonts very well). It doesn't happen with a skin with a serif font. It's not my browser (Firefox updated days before this happened and I never changed font sizes or anything).
I emailed the support team last night and they were having trouble reproducing the effect. It's most noticeable in full sentences of italicized text. I would put up screenshots (which I sent to the support team), but I'm not comfortable doing that with someone else's work (and my own doesn't have full sentences of italics).
Anyone else see this at all? Or is something on my end fucked?
ETA: They're working on it. The 'Chained Melody' skin uses a different font and doesn't have this problem.
