Here’s the story. I’ve created a few pages for myself that are basically Tech Doc type pages for me to play around with Bootstrap. I’ve done quite a few things with the pages including, but not limited to, using tables and description lists
Within one of my tables I have just the font but I’ve also added a bold tag for certain things within the cells to make them stand out. (should I be using strong?)
With the description lists, I like that the terms
<dt> are bold and the descriptions
<dd> are regular. It makes things stand out.
I’ve tried using different fonts, imported from Google and imported using what’s on my own Mac. When I do this, I’m not seeing the bold fonts clearly. It all looks the same. I’ve tried various sans-serif fonts and…well, blah. The only thing that seems to look as intended is if I use plain ole ‘sans serif’.
Is there any imported font that one can use that also accepts applied styles?
Edit: I’m attaching a codepen link to one of the pages I have to show an example.
To see what I mean, add
'Open Sans', to the
font-family and you’ll notice the text that is bold no longer appears as bold.
