A website user was telling me that text wasn't appearing on bold when the CSS called for font-weight:bold. She's using a Mac desktop, with Safari (and possibly Chrome; I don't have all info yet). The font is Raleway: <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> From what I was able to find -- no one on Google seemed to have this exact issue -- sometimes Safari won't show bold unless you specifically reference a font for it? Is that right? So the solution seems to be changing the stylesheet reference to: <link href="https://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Raleway:400,700" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css"> This just seems incredibly odd to me. I've never heard of a user having this issue before. Is this known? Is that the actual fix? Am I to assume all browsers on Chromebook (my preferred platform) and Linux and Windows just create an ad-hoc "faux bold" to display, if bold isn't specified? A lot of questions, but this is just a weird issue, especially since I haven't heard of it until June 2016.
