Update Wikimedia Design Style Guide with typeface choices
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Background

With the decision in T305920: Define the system's sans, serif and monospace typefaces, we also need to update Design Style Guide's typefaces documentation.

Acceptance criteria for Done

  • Update all resources/pages on DSG with new DS typeface choices.

Under consideration
We should probably also consider updating our font stacks, not only on DSG, but everywhere in production.
For example moving from current monospace choice
'Menlo', 'Consolas', 'Liberation Mono', 'Courier New', monospace; to
'Menlo', 'Consolas', 'Liberation Mono', 'Fira Code', 'Courier New', monospace;

Last point was raised in T303587#7926496

Event Timeline

Was about to resolve this task, when I noticed that we're not documenting our monospace stack correctly in Codex's Style guide:

This snippet should be updated to

'Menlo', 'Consolas', 'Liberation Mono', 'Fira Code', 'Courier New', monospace;

We should also add the title "Code" before the snippet to improve understanding.

Those tickets have different levels of granularity 🤔 I went with creating a subtask of T338598 to capture what's left to do here: T338775: Update Monospace stack documentation in Codex's Style guide. I think this task can be resolved now.
