For some reason, certain fonts look terrible on my computer—some lines are double-thick, splotches of 'ink', etc. They're hardly readable, and certainly not showing up as intended. Here's an example of a font as designed:
and as displayed on my screen:
(sorry for not having a better example at hand).
On one hand it would be nice to diagnose the problem itself. (Vista machine, problem happens in Firefox and Chrome but not in IE, etc.) but I think a more practical stopgap solution would be to block the download of the webfonts. Is there a way to do this?
I don't really care at what point this happens: stopping certain @-rules in CSS, disallowing the display of custom fonts, blocking it on a TCP or HTTP level. I don't want to do a DNS block on fonts.googleapis.com and themes.googleusercontent.com since that would stop unrelated good stuff as well.
