Google Web Font Browser Issue

I am using the Google Web Font "Muli" on the following page: http://goo.gl/4O5Zy

Ignore the fact that the design is all messed up; I'm not done with the page.



I have the following code in my head tag: <link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Muli' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

And my css body style and all subsequent styles requiring that font have:       font-family: 'Muli', sans-serif;

For me, in Firefox it looks perfect.
In Safari in looks almost perfect, but a little thin.
In IE it looks so thin that you can barely read it.
In Chrome it's all in italics!

Also, in my Dreamweaver, it's in italics. But it wasn't at first. I just came in one day, opened up the file, and bam--all italics!

Does anyone know why this happens and how it can be fixed?

Also, it get's weirder, because I tried it with different computers all around the office and it's not doing it with all of them. On some of them it looks fine in every browser.

Non-standard fonts are always risky.  Browser do not all use the algorithm to generate fonts, and user settings override on page code.  They will never look the same in all browsers.  They will never look the same for all users.

As for the change in dreamweaver, you probably changed something accidentally.  Dreamweaver is not a browser and should never be used to determine how thing will look in the internet in a real browser.
