Verdana:

DejaVu Sans:

Als Lösung schlage ich vor, dass wir uns für eine Schrift entscheiden und diese mit ausliefern. Dadurch erreichen wir eine bessere Verlässlichkeit der gesamten Darstellung.

Also DejaVu Sans, Open Sans oder Droid Sans die sind fast 100% äquivalent, und sind der Verdana auch recht ähnlich, in einigen Details aber noch besser lesbar.

Droid Sans seems to be a much better option than DejaVu. Especially the bold font face is much better readable.

I will install DejaVu, Droid Sans and Droid Sans mono in the theme. So we have all these available and can test a bit which one is better.

These fonts are available from:

Not sure how I can test it. I looked at http://test.e-taxonomy.eu/dataportal/preview/salvador/cdm_dataportal/taxon/7bcf9bb0-9155-4d29-ac9e-9822819b287c/images and for me it looks ok.

On production it does not seem to be installed (only after next release?), e.g. http://portal.cybertaxonomy.org/salvador/cdm_dataportal/media/d2d0db6e-9a72-4e07-88a5-ae49e734059a

@Walter, could you also have a look if it looks ok for you on test server? And pass the ticket back to Andreas K.

@AK - Looks good on test.e-taxonomy.eu (but I don't know how to "pass the ticket back")
