On Mozilla 1.1 for OS/2 (20020824), all the letters start to jiggle when you markup some text in the browser window. This seems font related. It happens with the Courier font used within this very Bugzilla text input window, but it does not happen with the Courier I used on http://www.aktionsgruppe.de. There it also happens with the Helvetica in the headlines. Times is only affected in the small variant used in the credits at the bottom of the main window, but not in the standard text. Also the standard font of Bugzilla is unaffected. The standard font of Mozila's mailer is also affected. The font in the URL window is not affected...
This is a permanent restriction because of the way fonts are computed on OS/2. It does not force characters to a pixel boundary.

Early Versions of Star Office had the same problem, but Star Division did manage to fix it. So there is a way. I do not remember how they did it, but a solution might be to cache the render results of one line of text. During markup the text doesn't change so it does not need to be re-rendered. This would also lower CPU load.
