Boldface

Post by AGinNEIowa » November 16th, 2010, 8:58 pm

I thought it was just me, but I see that USU78 also mentions it in this thread. I really have a hard time distinguishing the boldface type on this website. I really have to look at some of the Pick'em Entries to decipher what the pick is.

Is there something that can be done? It just doesn't seem to be enough different from regular....

I just changed it to be as bold as this font allows. See if that is better. I noticed that one of the selections on Pick Em just bolded a few letters of each entry which would make it difficult to discern.

I just made another improvement to the bold. I'm using a different/similar font for bold text that actually appears to be bolder. It should be about 1000% better now.

I think a better test would be to only bold a single word out of a whole string

The best test though was the fact that I could actually tell the difference in the Weekly Pick-em.
