Bold and italic fonts overlap with regular fonts in Firefox <.b> and <.i> wrapped words overlap with normal styled words in paragraphs notsosmart msg:3811406 6:12 pm on Dec 19, 2008 (gmt 0) This happens in my Firefox browser on my sites, AS WELL as some others, so I'm thinking that this is a browser problem. I am using FF on a Mac.
Anyway, it's hard to display the effect, but it appears to be some sort of spacing problem. Basically, in this example:
where WIDGET is bolded, the space between the words disappears, and as often as not the W and the T would overlap the last and first letters of the surrounding words.
The same goes for <.i>

Have you seen this on other machines or just your own? It might be something related to your setup.
If you open the Font Book application on your mac and look down the list of fonts (particularly at Helvetica, Arial etc - the common ones) you might see some with dots next to the font name. If that's the case:
Select the font by clicking the name, then click 'resolve duplicates' in the edit menu
That fixed an issue with certain fonts on my machine a while back.
I hope this helps
