Helvetica Neue Light has issues on some systems and with some font weights

Chrome on left, Safari on right. Both latest versions on Win 7 64bit with a helvetica neue light typeface installed on the system.
It's a hard one to pin down, but basically it comes down to light faces having a hard time scaling when you set weight in numerics. From a typography standpoint, you don't set weights on a weight-typed typeface like "Light".
The types aren't designed and hinted for that. If you use those, you treat them like regular. So, if you want to variate with weight here, use the regular Helvetica Neue.
