Re: Font change/distortion on I-Pads&other devices

Happy Fathers Day to all!
I wanted to clarify something before I send a class message.

Received a message from classmate indicating that the "font was pretty, but too difficult to read." I am fairly certain she has an I-Pad, as my husband does, and the Comic Sans MS looks like an elaborate script. Thus, the I-Pad does not have Comic and whatever is similar in name is the font used by the I-Pad. Is this correct? Is there any way for those I-Pad people to adjust the font to accommodate the Comic? Any other type of device that distorts the font?

What about browsers? Does it make a difference in font size or appearance depending on the browser? Thanks!

With warmest regards,

Kathleen Russell-Rader

Everything you said is correct. iPad (and other portable devices) do not have the same fonts as Windows PC.

Sometimes you can override the fonts in some browsers and force them to whatever a person wants. For example, FF, Tools, Option, Content. One would have to explore whatever browser they are using (that includes iPad and others).
