I recently came across this post and noticed some issues with the heading text.

For instance, the first one (with ###):


That third letter is supposed to be an 'i', but it looks like an 'l'. I first made sure it was correct in that post, and it was.

However, it seems okay with #, ##, and ** (respectively):




(The 'i' is still a little fuzzy with ##, but it can still be seen.)

This is observed under 100% zoom in Chrome. Increasing it seems to make it a little better, whereas decreasing it helps more.

    \$\begingroup\$ On 100% zoom in Firefox it looks just fine. Sure, the distance between the dot and the stick could be better, but it's clear enough to read. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ @mast that's strange, I get the same as Jamal... 100% zoom on Firefox, Chrome, Opera and IE. Might be to do with screen resolution? \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ Any news on this? It makes otherwise great answers like this one from h.j.k. extremely annoying to read. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Absolutely no issue on FF. Also, this won't be a bug with SE, but either a bug in the way either the browser or Chrome renders text on that screen resolution and scale. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Jamal looks like this might be fixed, I will leave it to you to verify that it is fixed for you as well and retag. \$\endgroup\$
