Windows Always Displays Italics - How to Fix Browser Always Displaying Italics - Windows Fonts Bug - Easy Fix.

An Easy Fix if your Browser is always displaying text in italics:

I recently had some problems with Windows 7 not displaying fonts correctly - i.e. fonts were always italicized in web pages (in Firefox, IE and Chrome - tried all three).

After some research I found a fix - copy and paste the following text (in between the dotted lines) into a new text document (e.g. in Notepad), save the file as fontfix.reg (or something similar). Right-click the file and choose Merge.

This works on Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7.

(NOTE: You must be logged in as an Administrator to perform this task.)
