Text Looks Jaggy

Article created: Jan 26 2009, updated: Jan 26 2009

Background:  Text looks jaggy and can be hard to read.

Status:  Info - "how to" article
Keywords:  Monitor,Fonts,Aliasing,Windows,Screen,Fuzzy
Categories:   *Article - fact*

Explanation:

Newer fixed pixel displays (LCD/Plasma Monitors) show aliasing (also known as jaggies) more often due to the pixels being displayed in a uniform way. This results in patterns emerging that are very easy for humans to comprehend. Microsoft has developed a new technology called "ClearType" that uses a technique called "Sub-Pixel Rendering" to make fonts look better on new monitors. ClearType is on by default in Windows Vista and Windows 7.



Solution:

Windows XP users should visit the following website to enable and configure ClearType: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306527
