Legibility and readability of adverts

Legibility and readability of adverts

The advert block texts now appear as bold type. I feel that it would be helpful to suggest that the adverts text should be in standard type and not bold type as bold makes it harder to read. Look at Tahoma and Trebuchet typefaces minimum 12 pt for better readability and legibility. This change would help all users, especially those with sight issues and dyslexia etc. Headings are OK in bold or better still in a larger point size.

Re: Legibility and readability of adverts

Hi Dogfinn, the main block of text is not in bold text only the main Title, Details, Terms and Contact are marked for bold the rest is marked for Arial,sans-serif; 14px so should not be showing up in bold. Please could you let me know which browser you are using and check with another browser to see if you get the same results.

Re: Legibility and readability of adverts

Hello Adam,
Thank you for your reply and description.
I'm using Firefox, latest version.
The Arial sans serif shows up as Arial Black which is a totally bold font.
This was not that case before the recent upgrade to the website, suggesting that the fault is not with Firefox.
Tahoma and Trebuchet should not display with this issue.
Best Regards,
Dagfinn

Re: Legibility and readability of adverts

They has been no changes to the site code since Jan 2016, so the pages are still the same, I suggest you look at any settings or plugins for firefox as the site does not use Arial Black and should failing to find Arial use sans-serif.
the latest changes where to the server itself to add the .club extension as some people where having issues with a over zealous anti-virus anti phishing system, which they fixed within hours of being told and the addition of the SSL certificates for both .org.uk and .club being added. none of these effect the css pages that set the font type.
Edit: Just been told that firefox on Mac's may use any Arial font installed before trying to use Sana-Serif and that it should be set to use Helvetica in firefox's settings. We will add Helvetica to the CSS files in the next update which was delayed for today because we found another bug.
