Mac OSX (Safari) and Gmail: why do 'read' and 'unread' messages always look the same?

When I use Gmail on my Windows 7 machine, no matter what browser I use, all the 'unread' messages are in bold font and all the 'read' messages are in regular font.
When I use Gmail on OSX, using Safari (but I've noticed it in Chrome too), all messages appear to be in bold font.
Here's a screenshot.
I've checked Safari settings but nothing jumps out, and the fact that it happens in Chrome leads me to suspect it's not a browser problem.
MacBook Pro 13"
OSX Snow Leopard 10.6.4
System Preferences under the 'Appearance' are set to the following:
"Turn off text smoothing for font sizes 6 and smaller."
