I'm not sure if you've seen this link yet, but if you apply the tweaks
suggested therein, Netscape will look a lot better.


This will show you how to create compatibility font aliases for arial and 
helvetica fonts, control the percentage of font size stepping, and prevent 
Netscape from scaling unscalable fonts.  Also: you can get rid of those
useless "shopping" and "search" icons in the Netscape toolbar.

If you haven't noticed any ugly display issues in Netscape before, try loading
http://www.espn.com .  I used to see overlapping and chunky font pixelation on
this page, but now it is fixed.

Mozilla (M15 at least) looks fine to me with no changes.  :)
