# Strong text a bit too strong

In the new site design I think that the bold style is a bit too strong.

This can be fixed by using Semi-Bold font face, i.e. replacing:

b,strong {
font-weight: bold;
}


with

b,strong {
font-weight: 600;
}


This should reduce the volume of shouting on the site.

• Note sure if this is allowed by the SE rules of course - but it seems an improvement.... – Maarten Bodewes Dec 22 '15 at 18:43
• OK, not acceptable by the design team it seems. Again, you can change this in your browser using the Stylish add-on / extension. Crypto users: please remove **bold** and <i><b>***bold***</b></i> from text where it doesn't belong. Hell bells, the escape sequence doesn't work for bold and italic but you understand what I mean. – Maarten Bodewes Dec 29 '15 at 13:08
