Lee Braiden, it seems to happen on specific sites, so like you said,
they must be defining the fonts. Unfortunately, the 'bad' font is on
many sites I use, especially my university's site is the one which
bothers me the most. I'm wondering why it's rendered so wrong.
I also think that the university site uses that Verdana which is badly
needed with the OO.org so I can't just pick fonts from the package.
Best solution for this would be if I could make those msttcorefonts
available only to OO.org. Is that possible?
Thanks for your help.
