Word in question is "Marginalized" (from http://www.worldbank.org/en/topic/socialprotection and searching through news/all/) here attached:

"Z" shown as "Q"

Font is showing a "Z" like a "Q" creatively on WorldBank.org, after checking "Andes" from multiple font repositories and entering each of the letters, nothing shows like WorldBank.org's version.

Discrepancy: WhatTheFont (WTF) said Corporative (Alt Hair) is the correct answer, but the Chrome Inspector/Inspect Elements Text Filter Field does not show "Corporative" (see the blue highlight) which is confusing (I can not tell if that is an error or the named "font family" extends somehow otherwise to other font names).

(Led by Social Protection, the page in question, advertising, among others, http://www.worldbank.org/en/news/press-release/2011/09/23/eurozone-crisis-clouds-recovery-emerging-europe-central-asia [you need to search for that through the /socialprotection/ link to read the lettering, it changes font for the actual article], for another example, I read the letter multiple times and still could not read.

I tried to save an archive.org copy for evidence and because of the fancy styling it is painful (or so far impossible, another task to learn another code library) to do a "faithful archive" of the lettering.)

    Hi OP, could you please edit your question to clean up the layout a bit, right now it's an unreadable mess of links. Here you can find help on formatting links. Thanks! – PieBie Nov 13 '18 at 8:36
  • Organized the messier links(*), so looks healthier at least. Still thinking using full URL's for the source code of the problem may help. – prosody-Gab Vereable Context Nov 13 '18 at 22:52

It's the "stylistic alternate" variant of Andes font family.

Debugging the site, out of many fonts used, there are 2 fonts that looks like the object of this question:

font 1 font 2

Aside of the thickness/weight, Andes has 2 variants that affect the lowercase 'aegyz':

Andes normal

Andes "normal" variant

Andes "stylistic alternate" variant

The one you're looking for is the stylistic alternate variant of Andes font family. (you can see the variant on myFonts)

Disclaimer: not affiliated to the site. I only found the site that can easily demonstrate the variant compared to other font sites. Suggestion to the more official font sites is open.
