After upgrading from Vivid to Wily, pages using the "Ubuntu light" font actually display a weight heavier than the regular one.
This happens with Chrome/Chromium and also the Ubuntu browser.

After manually reinstalling the 0.80-0ubuntu6 version from Vivid (in place of 0.83-0ubuntu1), the issue is fixed.
