    Hi,

    I think it isn't an issue per say, just a problem with the font being used, which is a Google Font. You could try to change the H1 font and the problem will dissapear. The .css file you need to change is in wp-content/themes/Karma/style.css.

    The line you need to overwrite will be:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 #main .comment-title, .four_o_four, .callout-wrap span, .search-title, .callout2, .comment-author-about, .logo-text {
    font-family: 'Cantarell',Arial,sans-serif;
    }


    change with e.g.:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 #main .comment-title, .four_o_four, .callout-wrap span, .search-title, .callout2, .comment-author-about, .logo-text {
    font-family: 'Verdana',Arial,sans-serif;
    }

    I think it's because of the font used in your css file. All title use Cantarell font, I'v searched for it and I'v found it, example on google webfonts:

    http://www.google.com/webfonts/specimen/Cantarell

    You can change it by looking in your style file for this code:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 #main .comment-title, .four_o_four, .callout-wrap span, .search-title, .callout2, .comment-author-about, .logo-text { 
    font-family: "Cantarell", "Arial", sans-serif;
    }


    and delete "Cantarell", part, or replace it with any other font you like, for example "Lucida Grande" used here at wpquestions.com, so the code becomes:

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5 #main .comment-title, .four_o_four, .callout-wrap span, .search-title, .callout2, .comment-author-about, .logo-text { 
    font-family: "Lucida Grande", "Arial", sans-serif;
    }


    and it's better to make it bold via font-weight css tag in your style file.
    Good luck.

    I guess you're right. Hard to believe WordPress would include a font selection that doesn't work. Choosing a different font did the trick though. Thanks!
