Can someone please let me know why any text off screen is bold and brighter than the other text on my pages? If I scroll from the top of a page to the bottom, for instance athttp://www.chromaticsites.com/__NEWSITE/professional-web-design-services.php, the text at the top will get bold and brighter once I scroll back from up from the top. Also, the text off-screen is bold and brighter when I scroll down when I first get to a page.

I've declared attributes for p in the stylesheet as well as in the body.

I've been making sites for a while and haven't come across this.

Thanks in advance,

Matt

Fixed it

That's because I fixed it Smile

Apparently Firefox on Mac has a problem with rendering text correctly sometimes. If you ever run into this issue, simply add "opacity: .99" to the body { } in the style sheet. Fixed my problem!

Late reply to the topic

How can I say this:

THANK YOU!!!!!

I've been fighting this issue for two days. I cleaned up the CSS via W3C CSS Validator and this 'visual oddity' wouldn't go away! Sad

Your solution works like a charm!! Smile

Oh, How this issue drove me nuts.

Every few weeks I'll come

Every few weeks I'll come across a page that does this on my Mac with a particular paragraph of text (this forum being among them) but it is rare and only a minor irritation. I thought it was a bug with my particular set-up but it's nice to know that I'm not alone. Well researched Smile

Life's a b*tch and then you die!
