Hi Eric, Andre

I have changed my website fonts to google's "open sans" for the entire body.

    Strangely, the open sans doesn't seem to show in all areas.

    any ideas?

    Strangely enough chrome whatfont and firefox what font gives me different font.
    chrome whatfont says i am using serif
    firefox whatfont says i am using open sans

    any ideas what is causing the inconsistency?

    Hi Eric, Andre,

    My css is been overwritten by something. here is my view source:

    search for district-child/style.css

    then immediately after that there is in-line css been declared. weird. not sure where it is coming from?

    i also used chrome's whatfont plugin to test it:it said i am using serif
    however, firefox whatfont says i am using open sans

    thanks.

    Hi,

    The font settings from the theme options is added as CSS into the page, so that's probably what you're referring to. Looks like you're loading those fonts from Google on your own, and using your Child Theme style.css to set the family. Is there a reason you aren't using the Theme Options font controls? Both Open Sans and Rock Salt are available, so you should be able to set your fonts there and not have to worry about overwriting things.
