I appear to have the same with the old.css

Switch to caek.css if you can bear the ultra-wide images and crave Times New Roman

Georgia is a better web font.

it's how I've been looking at ilx since forever. think of it as tracer.css

but georgia is not what the stylesheet was showing me before!

body {
font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", serif;


i checked to see if maybe i had only recently acquired georgia as a font, maybe in a microsoft office update, but it seems it's been sitting around, available to be used, on my computer for over a year. so i assume the stylesheet has changed?

Yes, it has changed -- I set it to Georgia because it had no font set at all, and some browsers are showing madness as a default font. Personally I prefer it massively over TNR (especially on shitty displays).

can you change the priority with which the fonts are selected, or fork your modification into a different stylesheet? i think old should stay old!!

yeah J i hated the switch to Georgia too, so now I’m using caek instead of old and it’s close enough

my ilx experience has improved markedly since i made wingdings my default font

Priority won't matter because virtually everything has both TNR and Georgia. I'm looking into a font preference though.

stet, Tuesday, 9 July 2019 14:17 (two months ago) link

god please this font is ludicrously monumental

OK, that's available now on the style setting page. It's early days, but I think it at least does what you want -- choose old.css and set the dropdown to "Times New Roman".

i think it must have tweaked before i changed it, somehow, because i was once again getting TNR/old.css after you changed it, but when i went to site preferences and left the dropdown on default, confirming that took me back to the default for old.css, where georgia comes first. (naturally i just re-set the dropdown.)
