    initial v1  
    1 The issue described in this ticket is not specific to WordPress or the way WordPress implemented webfonts; it's simply a side effect of the way webfonts are rendered when a user has disabled font smoothing in their OS. I don't believe a fix for this is necessary given that it affects a substantial and growing proportion of websites and an unsubstantial and shrinking proportion of users, but if anyone is interested in working on a solution, you may be interested in this article which describes a method of detecting the presence of font smoothing and falling back to a system font if it is disabled. http://wellcaffeinated.net/articles/2012/01/25/font-smoothing-detection-modernizr-style/

    33I think this ticket is safe to mark as wontfix and a new issue can be created if someone does decide to work on that fallback.
