Text presentation on Mac and PC

Can someone help me out on this one. I have a website which was
developed on a Mac. When viewing certain text in "verdana" on the Mac
all looks great, but on the PC the text is very fine and thin on all
browsers. Other text with bold and larger size seems to present the
same on both PC and Mac. Is there a simple way I can improve the
browsers text representation on the PC.

Other than 'get a Mac?'

Can you post a link that shows the problem? Do you know how the font size is specified in the code?

This has nothing to do with Rails, and should be taken to a CSS or HTML
forum.

Best,

Thanks Marmen I will do that.

I thought that you might like to read an answer that I received from a
certain pyfunk It might help others:-

Rendering always depends on system. Like on windows, if the user has
setup clear type fonts, he will be having a much better experience.

Some useful information

that may help take decision on improving font families for different
systems

    * Common fonts on all systems
    * Some good information on various fonts that work on different
systems and are best rendered at certain sizes.
