Fonts families Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
First of all I apologize for my poor English.

I'd like that Omniweb let the user choose fonts for each generic family in use in the W3C standards (serif, sans-serif, cursive, fantasy, monospace). And also that the user can choose his preferred family (serif or sans-serif).

Thanks.
 
That would be great!

The absence of this feature is a huge disadvantage if compared to Shiira, Camino, Firefox, Opera and Seamonkey. In some of these browsers even a "Always use my fonts" option is given.

This feature would be also a distinctive one in compare to Safari. And because of the lack of this feature I prefer Shiira and Camino over OmniWeb and Safari for watching the Wikipedia (Wikipedia uses the sans-serif family and I don't want to use Helvetica for Wikipedia, but OmniWeb and Safari enforce me to do so).

If you don' like the font for a web page, use the site preferences to change it for just that site.

If the "font" part of site prefs is not enough, you can create a custom css for that site and change any and all fonts to whatever you want. i use this all the time to change sites from Trebuchet (hideous) to helvetica or verdana.

I see you never tried to change the standard font of Wikipedia. Using the site preferences does not help as there is no option for changing the "sans-serif" family.

Just try it: go to http://en.wikipedia.org/ and select "Times New Roman" or "Arial" or any other font as "standard" font at the site preferences. Nothing will happen. Wikipeda (as many other sites) does not use the standard font family but the "sans-serif" font family.

This might be an option for easy structured sites like Wikipedia but not for sites like http://online.uni-graz.at/. Furthermore this would be just a geeky kludge to feign a feature which is solely missing in Safari and OmniWeb.

I see, true.

I personally use CSS for wikipedia i got from userstyles.org, called "gray lady". Makes wikipedia much more readable imho.
