Define and implement DropdownWidget font-weight consistently
Open, HighPublic

Description

In M101 the DropdownWidgets are currently featuring font-weight: bold. This was established to be visually on par with buttons.
Pros for featuring bold:

  • It is a similar kind of interaction widget like button, therefore should feature bold.
  • It would open up a possibility of making input versus “buttonesque“ widget clearer, which opens more solutions on T147808

See OOjs UI demo HorizontalLayout section for a good comparison

Cons:

  • bold might be too prominent in many of the dropdown use cases and be stealing focus when not needed.
