Description Adolfo Jayme 2014-08-24 03:16:31 UTC
You know: fonts, text sizes, and miscellaneous tweaks.

I was thinking: we ship* some nice fonts (such as Source Sans), why not giving one of them some prominence, while we update those CSS files from 2004? Filing this bug so that I remember to get back to this.

* In Windows, Mac, and official Linux builds. Of course I will preserve the fallback list for Linux distro builds that drop the fonts (e.g., Debian).

tdf#82997 Update CSS for fonts used in systems of this decade
Comment 2 Adolfo Jayme 2016-12-12 16:04:42 UTC
In the end I decided to just use the fonts of each platform’s UI (but I didn’t bother trying to specify macOS’ San Francisco in the CSS, because that requires hacks that may stop working anytime Apple desires to screw with people again).
