Font face, src: local url, doesn´t work in IE
Anyone know why the font size gets bigger in IE?
I know of the source code to judge that it is:
Direct link: http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?fami...ic,400,600,300
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Open+Sans:400italic,600italic,400,600,300' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>
but I wish, therefore, that it worked even in IE.

Another thing I was thought of is:
I have try to change the email address in forms.js but I cant see any message in my mailbox when I send message in the contact form (Contact).
And in index.html it stands (row 223): <form action="#", so I guess you might need something to write there instead of #, right?
I am still talking about this site: http://www.websitetemplatesonline.com/free-template/Free-Cream-Studio-Theme.html

First off, the font size only increases in IE8 and below.
IE 9 behaves itself as far as I can see.
I remember having a problem like this with headings in IE7 a while back.
Applying "font-weight:normal;" to the affected elements helped me.
Does that do anything for you?

No it didn´t work in IE9 on my computer.

Yeah, ok, on second inspection, the IE 9 version is still a bit fatter that Chrome, but IE 8 and IE 7 are way worse ...
Anyway, it seems that the reason IE is getting confused, is that you are specifying multiple font weights in the call to Google Web Fonts
Try just specifying the one weight
Does that make a difference?

I also wanted to take a moment to recommend Font Squirrel:
You can download Open Sans from here and drop it directly into your web project.
Maybe that'll help.

Reason: works in IE offline but not online
