View Full Version : Netscape 6 and Mac OS X bold font

11-25-2002, 10:56 PM
I have the following code:

<p><b>This is to be bold</b></p> with the stylesheet set at:

LI, P, OL, UL, TD{
font-family: Arial, Helvetica;
font-size: 8pt;
margin-right: 10px;
margin-left: 20px;
font-weight: normal;

In all Windows platforms and in Mac/IE 5, the bold is being rendered in both IE and NS. But in NS/Mac OSX it is not. Any ideas? I have tried:
font-weight: bolder !important;
but it doesn't seem to help.

just b { font-weight: bold; } should do it. im wondering if <strong> is still valid... although <b> should to the same thing.

do you have all the paragraphs using that same style? coz 8pt is very small...

8 pt is very small, but the content is quite lengthy, so in order to display it all, it is in 8 pt. But the printable version is in 10pt, so we make up for it!

Any other suggestions? I have tried assigning a numeric value to the font weight. I have tried inline style declarations. Plus I've searched Bugzilla and have found no solutions.

Try taking font-weight:normal; out of your style for LI, P, OL, UL, TD.

Tried removing font-weight: normal in the LI, etc. code to no avail. Is there any other style that I can possibly manipulate?
