    Hi guys,

    My site is now live! Pls visit: http://www.johnalderson.me

    On desktop and Safari browser, the custom font ‘Executive-Regular’ appears as it should.

    However on Firefox and Chrome it looks pretty awful: bolder and tightly spaced.

    I’ve tried adding:
    font-weight: normal;

    This has made no difference.

    Is there something in the theme and styling for the Slider tab list (on right on my homepage) that might be affecting the appearance of the font on those other browsers?
