Description

16 years ago
I noticed on the mach-o OS X build that when text on a webpage is very small it
is rendered incorrectly. It appears pixelated. For an example that I found look
at http://www.zdnet.com/zdnn under "News in Breif" or "Commentary" on the side.

Screenshot of problem

This attachment shows the problem I am experiencing. This is the side of the
page on zdnet.com/zdnn viewed in the mach-o build that was released on the
n.p.m.macosx.

Hm, it's as though the antialiasing is failing somehow.

Confirming this issue in the Mach -O (11/21) only build. A style sheet is
applied to this text.

.v1{ font-size: 10px; font-family: verdana, geneva, helvetica; }

After looking at the page again, I see a IE css stylesheet is applied first. The
css rule applied is using xx-small for font size.

.v1 { font-size: xx-small;
      font-family: verdana, geneva, helvetica; }

14 months later... no jaggies here. I see smooth antialiasing, just ike
everything in OSX 10.2 

Unless someone still using 10.1 or lower has objections, this should be resolved
fixed.

default text looks cocoa smooth, and still isn't jaggy even with smoothing
turned off.
