Do you use an LCD monitor or laptop? Do the fonts look funny? In Windows XP you can set the display so that fonts are smooth (no jaggy edges).

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Display, then select the Appearance tab.
  2. Click the Effects button.
  3. Select the Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts check box, then select ClearType from the drop-down list.
  4. Click OK to save and close all settings.
