    one looked good and one looked fat...anyway, i've looked at the jpg in
    the URL you posted and on my machine, graphics set and monitor i can't
    see that there is any difference in fatness between the good and the
    ugly fonts!

    now that you have changed the subpixel rendering in the troublesome
    machine, take another look at

    i'd love to know if you can still see the fat problem, or not (i still
    can't).

    Apologies, I should have described the problem better. I agree it is hard to recognize it - but I have another snapshot with correctly rendered font - you should able to see the difference if you look at the two images. https://dl.dropbox.com/u/561594/snapshot2.png

    Thank you. Again the weird thing was that the same dejavu fonts were bering rendered differently depending on places - I guess for some places the subpixel hinting settings were applied automatically.
