Henh. Discover by accident how to make the pixellated fonts look solid(er). Control Panel- Display- Appearance- Effects button-- Use the following method to smooth the edges of screen fonts- and select Clear Type. At some resolutions this may do horrible things, as it does in IE for some people, but suddenly everything is much clearer. (And to my eyes, smaller as well, but that may be an illusion.)

Of course, now I wonder if I've altered font sizes here in IE somehow, but I don't think you can do that through the Windows control panel. In fact, I don't think you can set default IE font size period, which is vexing.

Even Word's fonts look better than they did, but 2003 is still having trouble with Courier 13. What font face and size do you guys regularly write in?
