What did you do?
================
CompareĀ https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/JavaScript/Reference/Global_Objects/RegExp/test to http://florianscholz.com/assets/img/mdn-2013.png

What happened?
==============
Bold fonts (h2 headlines, strong text, "Welcome to the new, improved MDN design.", etc) appear more bold.

What should have happened?
==========================
Regular bold fonts

Is there anything else we should know?
======================================

I noticed that too -- I'm looking into it this morning.
Florian, what OS are you on? When did you take the mdn-2013.png screenshot?

Ubuntu 13.10 and the screenshot was taken during the break for a blogpost. So the regression is probably from the last few days this year...
