    I can’t figure this one out but it must be in the css somewhere.

    I installed Mindstream 1.0 on this site http://personalgeneralcounsel.com/test-page/ and although text shows as bold in the editor when the page is published the text isn’t bolded in chrome. However in Safari it is.

    Any clues folks?



    Could be the browser/server/WordPress caching which is a problem i see often. Its crazy but sometimes it takes a while to show up.



    Nope, cuz if you view the page now in Chrome it’s not bolded. http://personalgeneralcounsel.com/test-page/

    It looks nice and bold in Chrome on Win7, likewise FF and IE9.

    Sometimes when a CSS person does a very hardcore reset, “strong” and “bold” might be set to not show up, then you need to manually style them. Not the case here, as this is set to font-weight bold. Maybe there’s some Mac issue. Font life can be slightly uncertain with Google fonts at times, though it’s generally great. :-)

    Here’s a random idea: you can be more specific with your import statement. This explicitly pulls in regular and bold sizes. There are loads of other sizes, but you probably don’t need all of them.

    <a href="http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,700" rel="nofollow">http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400,700</a>

    This forum keeps killing my import statement, so I’m just showing the URL code that goes into the import statement in style.css! Mamma mia.

    Then you could deliberately style “strong” to use that:

    strong {
      font-weight: 700;
