open photoshop... make a new image at some rather large size... 
use the text tool to enter your nice, proper quotes... render them, 
and scale it down to silly small (like 32x32, but keep whatever 
aspect ratio you have)...

now, scale it up...  or just zoom in and screen cap that...

or cap the quotes from a page layout app, paste and zoom...

no filters needed, just capping, resizing, and capping...

make sense at all?

i think he just enlarged a screen cap from netscape...
