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 you seen the lowercase "o" of Trebuchet in both renderings? Looks like a 0 to me.

I don't see what's readable about both methods. Also by using either kind of hinting and antialiasing in those screenshots, the thickness of the font and their character is completely lost. So why use more than one font at all. They look almost the same anyway?
