Re: [NTO] Squiggly fonts on TFT
- Hi Lotta,
I would blame it all on font smoothing. This kind of thing causes very
pretty but migriane-like visions on my laptops.
Check different levels of font smoothing and see what happens.

needs to know ist what the window dimensions are, the screen is beside
the point. There even are people running a virtual screen several times
the size of the physical one so they can scroll between their windows or
for a two-screen setup. Imagine their joy, when some script opens a
window at full screen and without resize.
Sadly it is far easier to ask for the screen dimensions than the window
ones, which are one the things older IE versions did differently from
do things that are wrong for the window. Zooming in new IE and Opera
versions makes things even more difficult but manageable.
