      Description

      The fonts in many places look wrong. Digging into it there seems to be two things going on.

      (1) We are picking completely the wrong fonts. "Helvetica Neue Light" instead of "Helvetica Neue" and "Helvetica Neue Condensed Bold" instead of "Helvetica Neue Bold".

      (2) We are using LCD text in places that Safari and other browsers don't. Some may be due to us not honoring the CSS hint

      -webkit-font-smoothing: antialiased;
