This Space for Rent

Fixing a rendering glitch?

Safari (and Firefox) have, for the longest time, rendered monospace fonts in a really teeny size for no particular reason aside from what I can only guess is that there are webkit developers who really don’t like monospace fonts are and trying their damnest to ensure that nobody uses them. I’ve been grouchily living with it for a long time now, but this weekend I published a couple of new releases (postoffice and discount) with lists of feature/bugfixes that were laden with monospace bits and I finally snapped when I saw all the goddamn text in the rendered documents.

So, I took advantage of da google and found a css patch:


Amazing that I have to explicitly tell web software to make fonts regular sized unless otherwise specified.

Sheesh, I can’t wait for the next round of “lets break things” from the open source world.
