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?

I just tried it on my machine (Gentoo, OpenOffice 3.1.0) with all three fonts that you used and it doesn't happen to me. I'm not quite sure what is different but the kerning works fine here.


I'd like to see an example, I've never seen OO.o handle font display well, http://bayimg.com/MabNhaaCK - but I'm not fussed for free. Printed and pdf output are fine for most uses - though not up to LaTeX standards - I don't use OO.o as a reading environment.
