from IRC:

"00:09 < chenba> speaking of blogs, the font (PTSansRegular) on the the moz webdev blog doesn't render awesomely on Win XP/7; looks fine in ubuntu though."

A blog post I recently came across [1] mentions some possible reasons for fugly web fonts on Windows (i.e., missing hinting and OpenType vs. TrueType rendering) so we might want to try that out. Anyone know which software we can use to fix/convert the font?

Is this still a problem? Just wanted to confirm before taking it.
