Description

Hi,

The problem: Hebrew pages come out blank in IE 11 when using Twenty Twelve and up basic WP themes.

This is a known issue: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/23438319/using-import-for-google-fonts-is-not-working-on-internet-explorer

It's an issue in WP since this font came into use around version 3.0 and the upgrade of themes 2012 and 2013. In my team we have bypassed it with child themes. I thought I should report it after attending contributors day in WCEU2014.

Proposed solution: use for for default font in WP themes any other font that has local versions for any language.

Best

  • Summary changed from Open Sons font won't display Hebrew pages in IE 11 to Open Sans font won't display Hebrew pages in IE 11

Google fonts can be disabled per language, and Open Sans is already disabled in Hebrew translation for both core and Twenty Twelve.

Twenty Thirteen uses Source Sans Pro and Bitter fonts, which are enabled. They should probably be disabled too if they cause issues.

Replying to xavortm:

Related to #36753 - System fonts are to be used instead of Open Sans.

This one isn't related, since it's talking about Open Sans displaying in themes, not in core.
