GETTING FONTS TO LOOK THEIR BEST ON YOUR SCREEN

Mac OS X already does a special brand of font smoothing (a form of anti-aliasing) to make your fonts look crisp and clean onscreen. However, you can tweak how it “smooths” your fonts to give you the best possible look depending on which type of monitor (flat panel, CRT, etc.) you're using with your Mac. To choose which style of font smoothing works best for your monitor, go under the Apple menu, under System Preferences, and click on the Appearance icon. In the Appearance options, in the bottom section, choose the type of font smoothing that matches the type of monitor you're using from the Font Smoothing Style pop-up menu.
