Font acting strange - not becoming bold

I’m using this font:


<!-- Google Fonts –>
<link href=‘’ rel=‘stylesheet’ type=‘text/css’>

Example: go to this page:

Inspect Element on the “Types of Shims” header over the ul and try increasing the boldness and then remove it altogether.

Really weird…is this just the nature of the font?

Could it have anything to do with it being a h2 ?

Negative, I tried it on some text within a <p> too.

Looks like the font only has two weights to it - 100 (normal) & 600 (bold).

Ahhh, I see what I need to to do…I can select which weights I want from Google in order to keep the page load down. Interesting.
