By default, Firefox uses hardware acceleration under Windows 7 and later. With DirectWrite, font faces like Arial Black are just a subset of the Arial family. The implication is that Firefox doesn't recognize Arial Black, Arial Narrow, Calibri Light, etc. when specified with font: or font-family:. Articles like the above need to clearly state the proper way to do things and provide examples.

BAD: <p style="font-family: 'Arial Black'">Arial Black</p>
GOOD: <p style="font-family: 'Arial Black', Arial; font-weight: 900">Arial Black</p>
