mediawiki.ui buttons using system fonts (rather than Vector's font-family settings)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: swalling


After the update to the new Vector typography, mediawiki.ui forms and buttons are displaying system fonts like Lucida Grande (for OS X) or Microsoft Sans Serif (for Windows).

The intended behavior is to use Vector's font stack, which right now is "Helvetica Neue, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif". (After it is just sans-serif, which still should not default to a system font, but instead should default to Helvetica on OS X and Arial on Windows.)

Version: unspecified

Form elements use the system UI font by default.
