Hi guys,
The body font in RT 3.8.x's new theme 'web2' looks very blocky and ugly 
on both a Linux and a Windows workstation here. We've only tested RT 3.8 
on three workstations, the other being a Mac which rendered Helvetica 

On inspection of the CSS files I found that the font order is Helvetica, 
and then Arial.

I edited share/html/NoAuth/css/web2/layout.css:
body {


    background: #547CCC 
top left repeat-x ;
    font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif;


    font-family: helvetica, arial, sans-serif;
    font-family: arial, helvetica, sans-serif;
to resolve the issue.

I wonder if this is a common problem for Linux and Windows workstations, 
and a mistake has been made in the CSS?

Best regards,
