Yes that link, but if I use Myriad the C is different.

The first two buttons are the original, and I try to make the 3th and 4th buttons the same with the Myriad font:

The C is different and it's a little bit taller then the original.

Maybe an other type of Myriad? :|

It should be Helvetica Neue 75 Bold (http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=201473) and Helvetica Neue 55 Roman (http://www.fonts.com/findfonts/detail.htm?pid=201471).

edit by dhn: This are the correct fonts! We apologise for the misleading information before. :)

Thanks SHS...

What is the Neue 45 Light used on/for?
EDIT: Oh duh, it’s buttons like POSTREPLY for POST

I’ve been testing 65 Medium, and it appears to match but with some PS effects applied.
I’m still getting a tad too much fuzzyness, but at least the glyphs match now. :D

As per the corrected post, the correct sizes are 55 / 75. Sorry for the confusion. :)
