Google Fonts Variations
How to edit theGoogle Fonts Weight?
In Google Font you're able to choose the thickness of the web-font.
Some fonts don't support all weight variations, so you have to check in GoogleFont Site which is the right set for each font.
IMPORTANT NOTE: With the wrong weight the character is NOT displayed correctly. This is not a bug. Many fonts in Google have no variations but only the default value. Check carefully and set the right value.
