    Safari "best for CRT" smoothing as CSS

    HI All,

    I am using @font-face to load an ITC-Machine font on my website. This looks fine in all browsers except for Safari which is rendering the font too bold and making it look basically like a bunch of blocks. I was playing around with the font smoothing settings in Safari's preferences and found that the "Best for CRT" setting renders the font perfectly. Is there a way, maybe through a CSS -webkit command, or some other method that I can apply this preference for Safari when my pages load?

    I have tried:
    -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;

    But this didn't change anything. What are the other options for this property?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    In the past I have used a font shadow on the web-kit browsers. Find this to be only an issue on the Chrome version on PC.

    Thanks syco,

    Yes that helped some. As it turns out there is only an issue with the PC version of safari. The font looks OK in the Mac version.
