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!

Can you post your reference to this bug?

cheers,

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

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!
