Personally, I hate seeing text-as-image, and on a high-res monitor
it's still got the same problem - it's too small (and can't be 
copy/pasted into an editor to view, something I've had to resort
to in the past!). 

Why not use relative sized fonts and give the user an easy way to 
change the base text size? It can be done server- or client-side,
and users love being given that control.
