User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031028
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.6a) Gecko/20031028

by accident I opened the mozilla users guide and immediatelly saw, that there
are really bad fonts implementations. So, my suggestion has two goals:
- Please use better font implementations
- if not possible, use other fonts for the docu ;-)

What tags are affected?
Its the headers:
<h1>Getting Started with Mozilla</h1>
<h4>Getting Mozilla</h4>
<h3>System recommendation</h3>

and the ancors:
<a name="before-installing-mozilla">Before you install</a>

if useful/necessary, ask me for a screenshot

Reproducible: Always

Over to Layout: Fonts and Text.

Seeing this with Firebird 0.7 on WinXP, too.

The fonts just come from the OS.

If this is a bug for the document to use different fonts, why is it filed on the
Mozilla browser?

Picture of page, with embedded zoom

Added the first paragraphs, embedded a zoom (green  box) for better
understanding. You will see the big difference of quality Header text/ normal
text

I added a picture, showing normal text and some header text. In addition a
zoomed box was embedded.

Boris: I think You're right. Tried the page with IE. Result is the same. 
-> No Browser has to be adjusted, we should fix it in the docu.
