Description

8 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.3) Gecko/20100401 Firefox/3.6.3

For texts smaller than 300px of size (sometimes 305), the browser applies font smoothing. If any larger font is used, then no smoothing is applied.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make an element with font size > 300px;
Actual Results:  
Font is not smoothed

Expected Results:  
Font should be smoothed (if the settings say so)

You should add specific font-family(s) to your testcase, since this behaviour depends on that (can't reproduce with my default font).

This might be intended, don't know. 

[BTW, <!doctype> doesn't trigger strict mode, use <!doctype html> instead]

This is a Windows GDI issue, you can see it in other apps as well.

It should be ok with DirectWrite.

Indeed, it happens on the other browsers as well, but I was not sure.

A use !doctype, because it's short. It happens with other doctypes as well. But as mentioned by Alex, it's (probably) a GDI issue.
