Morphos MorphZone presents an article from the 'Amiga Professor' Peruggi in which he explains the managing of TrueType webfonts on MorphOS and all other Amiga-like systems. It is a complete tutorial with AREXX scripts on how to adjust webfonts to obtain correct aspect ratio of HTML pages in Amiga browsers.

The screenshots were telling. The "after" shot looks like the Firefox shot in that it is now using the same fonts. Unfortunately they are still antialiased. Not that I care, I rarely use AA fonts (they seem fuzzy to me) but someone won't like it. Font handling is one of the things one hears about often at OSNews when desktop Linux comes up, and if anyone cared enough about Amiga to start flamewars, I imagine lack of AA would come up.

It surprises me though, I always had the impression that morphOS was a polished, shiny looking thing. Now it looks like the shots might not have been taken on morphOS (not familiar enough with it myself) and if that's the case, would they look any different on morphOS?
