Can't get font to match other site's font exactly via CSS

On there is text in the top right.

I am trying to display that exact same text on

For some reason on the latter the fonts are shifting a little bit out of position when you compare the two.

Any idea why?

The slight difference is likely to be down to the different ways you load the Open Sans font - on the first site you are loading the font from the Google API with a link in the HEAD of your document.

In the second site, you are loading the font using a font-face declaration in your CSS.

Try matching the methods that your fonts are called one way or the other. The Google link will take care of cross-broser issues so is probably easier
on the .com version it is inheriting from the body this:
text-rendering: optimizelegibility;

You cannot expect the rendering of elements to be exactly the same unless the styling is exactly the same.

The best reference for text-rendering is:

The layout isn't the same either.  The 'newer' version has a lot more nested elements.
