There's a letter-spacing: 0.02em rule on these because you asked for it here: T218966#5130398

Should the increased letter spacing continue to be applied on desktop, and only be undone on mobile, or should it be removed completely?

Hi @SBisson @Catrope - can we remove letter-spacing from all the modules please? It has very marginal benefit considering we are using the standard sans-serif font stack anyway, and in the different languages we have the module, I prefer to not change the letter-spacing from the default of 0 in case of unintended visual effects.
