Ugly Helvetica font in web2 theme of RT 3.8.x

Hi guys,
The body font in RT 3.8.x’s new theme ‘web2’ looks very blocky and ugly
on both a Linux and a Windows workstation here. We’ve only tested RT 3.8
on three workstations, the other being a Mac which rendered Helvetica
perfectly.

On inspection of the CSS files I found that the font order is Helvetica,
and then Arial.

I edited share/html/NoAuth/css/web2/layout.css:
body {

padding:0;
margin:0;

background: #547CCC 

url(<%RT->Config->Get(‘WebPath’)%>/NoAuth/css/web2/images/background-gradient.png)
top left repeat-x ;
font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif;

}

changing:
font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif;
to:
font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
to resolve the issue.

I wonder if this is a common problem for Linux and Windows workstations,
and a mistake has been made in the CSS?

Best regards,
Justin
