    Google Web Font Browser Issue

    I am using the Google Web Font "Muli" on the following page: http://goo.gl/4O5Zy

    Ignore the fact that the design is all messed up; I'm not done with the page.



    I have the following code in my head tag: <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Muli' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

    And my css body style and all subsequent styles requiring that font have: font-family: 'Muli', sans-serif;

    For me, in Firefox it looks perfect.
    In Safari in looks almost perfect, but a little thin.
    In IE it looks so thin that you can barely read it.
    In Chrome it's all in italics!

    Also, in my Dreamweaver, it's in italics. But it wasn't at first. I just came in one day, opened up the file, and bam--all italics!

    Does anyone know why this happens and how it can be fixed?

    Also, it get's weirder, because I tried it with different computers all around the office and it's not doing it with all of them. On some of them it looks fine in every browser.

    I have the same issue for IE. IE is awful, I would suggest having a fallback in Helvetica or Ariel. Or, you could add code that would resize it to your specifications by adding browser specific code.
