I see this for the word "Māori" on the right News pane on the forums:

 

 

It looks fine on the front page, however. This is over Edgeium, Edge, Chrome, IE and Firefox.

So correctly called Microsoft Edge.

 

I have checked GZ on Mac/Windows 10 and Ubuntu using Firefox, Chrome, Microsoft Edge(both Beta and Dev channels), Chromium and the fonts are displaying correctly in all counts. Are you running the latest versions of these browsers?

Technically yes, "Microsoft Edge" but that generally gets it confused with the other Microsoft Edge which is based on Microsoft's own Trident engine

 

Yes, these browsers are all up to date. I see the same issue on a number of Windows 10 & Server 2016/2019 machines running these browsers.

 

To clarify, it's only mangled in this area:

Gave up? No, this is more than a skin.

It's like that for me too, but on the actual news page it's OK. Also, it's in the page source "Māori" vs "Māori".

LOL.

 

Edgeium is a nickname for the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium. So I assume that neb is making up another fake name as a joke.

 

Chromefox is actually a Firefox browser extension that makes Firefox look more like Chrome.
