I created a Typekit Web Project with 300 and 700 weights.

  1. The link is enqueued in my WordPress functions.php.
  2. My CSS specifies 700, there are no other weight attributes attributed to this h6 tag,
  3. The Firefox and Chrome inspectors show 700 in the Rules and Computed dialogs,

but the rendered result on the screen is a faux slightly darker version of 300.  See attached screenshot. Any ideas or things I can check? Note I changed the typeface to Proxima Nova and 700 weight worked fine.

Harshika,

None of those tips in the link apply. I've been using Typekit from the beginning (Jason Santa Maria, etc), so I know how to use it, having 2 dozen sites currently using TypeKit...or Adobe Fonts. Note: in my OP I mentioned trying the same CSS file with Proxima Nova, and it worked fine. If you can show me an example of a website using Roboto 700, I might be able to figure it out (the 300 works fine).
