    Just curious if anyone else has seen this. On this site only, lower case w's are hard to make out because the middle portion of the w is very faint. Makes it difficult to read. Not as noticeable on a capital W.

    Thanks,
    Joe

    Hadn't thought of that. Using Firefox 58.0.1. Tried it on Chrome; same thing! Very weird. Has to be a problem with graphics card, but why only on this site?? The www in the url line is perfect.

    Definitely computer related; fine on my Surface Pro. Not worth spending any time on however!!

    After switching to my first computer from a typewriter, I soon needed a new screen.

    I couldn't see see through the white out.

    :rolleyes:
    Wasn't obvious how to do that in Firefox but there was a setting to allow pages to choose their own fonts. I said no, and the problem went away.

    Thanks for the hint!

    I never really noticed it before but, yeah, small double-ewes are indeed hard to make out on my screen too.

    I'm using chrome.
