This is the reason you should use subpixel rendering, a.k.a. ClearType(TM).

Here's some normally rendered, ugly text.

Now, here's the same text, subpixel-rendered this time.

How to enable ClearType on your Windows XP:

  1. Go to start -> Control Panel -> Display.
  2. In the Display Properties pop-up, go to Appearance tab.
  3. Click Effects... button.
  4. In the Effects pop-up, check Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts.
  5. Then choose ClearType in the drop-down box below the checkbox.
  6. Click OK in the Effects pop-up.
  7. Click OK in the Display Properties pop-up.
