I just got the latest instalment from Joel Spolsky, which talks about
font rendering in Safari / Windows:


It's a little disappointing by his normal standards. In one paragraph he
talks about how "the advantage of Microsoft's method is that it works
better for on-screen reading", and in the next paragraph he criticizes
them for being as unstylish as Wal-Mart.

I don't mind having my browser fonts rendered so as to enhance their
screen readability. I am, after all, reading them on a screen!
