whenever i wanna apply font-weight to a certain text within a table only the normal and the bold propreties work, I'm trying to get the crisp effect for text from photoshop the only way i can think of is to set the font-weight property' if i set it anything between 400 and 900 it gives me a bold weight but i don't want it to be that thick

My guess is that its a browser bug, but all the browsers seem to behave the same way. Except its 600 and above is bold, 500 and below is normal. (Chrome and Safari behaved oddly at 600. They seemed to change the font style to a monospaced bold font.)

Just to point out that MS, in a attempt to make there IE browser text look clearer than other browsers, turned off cleartype text by default, but set it to work for IE browsers, tut, tut. You had to manually go into display setting and turn it on, to get the same result. As i don't know which operating system you are using, or which browser, i just thought i point this little dirty trick MS tried. Also have you tried font-weight: lighter;

this is my table: <table id="eclogo"> <tr> <td id="ecservices">Ecommerce services</td> </tr> <tr> <td id="ecscreen"><img src="img/screen.jpg" /></td> </tr> </table> i want to have the "Ecommerce services" to be a little bit thicker than normal this is my css for it, i put 600 for the weight but i get the same effect as bold and if i put anything from lighter to 500 i get the normal effect: /* Ecommerce Main */#eclogo {margin-top:25px; float:left; }#ecservices {padding-left:22px; font-family:Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight:600; }#ecscreen {padding-left:22px; padding-top:50px; }
