    Hello.

    I generally front end develop in Firefox because of firebug - I just checked some I'm working on and I noticed the fonts are all bolder in Safari.

    I have: font-weight: 100; set which seems to work for Firefox but not Safari or Opera come to mention it.

    Does anyone know how to get around this?

    Code:
    font-weight: normal;
    I think some browsers have issues with numerical values. I use 'normal' and 'bold' only. Most browsers won't show a difference for the different numerical values anyways.

    This works really well.

    You can change the color of the shadow to work with different backgrounds.

    See I want to browser to display light fonts and display lighter wasn't doing it either.
