Graphics, User Interfaces The Engineering 7 weblog has an item about the improvements made in the ClearType font rendering technology which has been included in Windows since Windows XP. While I won't go too deeply into that post, I did figure it was a good opportunity to talk about font antialiasing in general; which type do you prefer?

Have a look at the different weight of the i's in "Spirit of Summer", and anywhere else with a bit of verticality to it, look at the l's in "All". Along with the occasional collisions of characters, there's that sort of sandpapered look to the text when you see a block of it, as if some of the letters have been partially obscured or rubbed away. For example, in "Clapton" the C and t look like a different weight to the rest of the name.
