Hi, I try to use Open Sans as a heading font. I want it to look exactly like on the Google fonts preview with font-weight = 300. So I add this to the custom css. However, the font looks more bold, like a 400. If I increase the font-weight it will look even more bold, always more bold than in the Google preview. How should I make my heading font look like a exactly like a 300? http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/837/googlefonts.png/
The additional font weight has to be imported in so open the header.php file of your theme files and look for:
<link rel="stylesheet" href="<?php echo get_bloginfo('template_url'); ?>/css/custom.css" type="text/css" media="screen"/>
add this line just after it:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
