the devil is in the detail (css question)

If you look at http://www.antiriddle.com, in the right column in the content box, you'll see "Don't have an account? Register here." here is a normal clickable link (<a>) but for some reason it's being rendered in a different font than the normal paragraph text. I declared the following in my stylesheet, hoping that it would apply the font-family to all text elements, but the link is obviously in some different font:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. * {
  2.     padding: 0;
  3.     margin: 0;
  4.     color: #FFF;
  5.     font-family: "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
  6.     font-size: 0.975em;
  7. }
You can see the difference most clearly when looking at the letter "e". Any ideas why this might be happening? Declaring an a { } stylesheet property hasn't fixed the problem.

I don't know, looks alright to me on IE 7.

Hmmm maybe it's just Firefox. I should install IE7 because it looks so bad in IE6 that I never even check it. Anyone else?

Thanks for the reply!

IDK, it looks in the same font on my browser (IE6).

I'm running Firefox and it looks OK to me, too.

It can't just be me.

check out the homepage without logging in: on the right it says "Don't have an account? Register here." The lowercase "e" in the word "Register" looks different than the lowercase "e" in the word "here".

Am I crazy?

Is this what you see?

No, mine looks slightly different. I can't find my Photoshop serial right now so I'm not going to install it just to upload the picture. I did figure out though that when I zoom in or out, it looks the same as the rest of the text, so maybe it just has something to do with my resolution. I'll just let it be, since nobody else seems to see anything wrong with it.

That is the screenshot from Firefox on my computer. It looks the same in IE6/7.
