Strange character behaviour

Post by Huhu » Mon Apr 25, 2016 12:47 pm

Hej!
I am writing some entries in Swedish, and they have the letter "å". While the "ö", "ä" etc. are all displayed correctly, the "o" on the "å" is shifting a bit to the side, creating a gap between letters ("a°"). Usual font end entry, nothing out of the ordinary.
This is only the case with one single entry, and only on a Windows machine, not on OS X.
Anyone observing such behaviour?

Thanks for any advice!

Is this a publically accessible site? If so, a URL to the entry in question would help narrow it down.

Is this happening in various browsers or just in Firefox? Could be some weird CSS. Also, which version of Windows did you reproduce it under?

It's the Verdana font definition in:

Code: Select all

/*======================== Anpassad */

body {
	background-color: #fff8dc !important;
	color: #003366 !important;
	background-image: url(templates/2k11/jaktfalkbilder/falklogo_stor.png);
	background-repeat: no-repeat; 
	background-position: 1% 200px;
	font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; 
}
If you remove it, all is well. :)

Ian
