you're right - using ClearType is even better.

When writing about this problem for the first time the font aliasing
was set to "default" which makes your page (i.e. the font your are
using) very difficult to read.

Disabling font aliasing results in a much better presentation, Clear-
Type is excellent. But I will still have to decide if I like this
technology because now every application benefits from this which
looks quite unfamiliar (at least for now).

Thank you for your help :)
