Pixelated text?

    I am suspicious that this issue is not specific to the Minimum theme, but I am at a loss as to where to go for help.

    I purchased Minimum last month and I love it. My only gripe is that on two of the three computers I regularly use, all of the text looks pixelated with jagged edges. This includes everything: the blog title, headings, and body text.

    The computer I am using currently is the worst of the three, a desktop (Windows XP). My laptop at home (Windows 7) is markedly better, but it’s still noticeable. And finally, on another desktop computer (also Windows, can’t remember which version) that I use only occasionally it looks absolutely perfect and smooth.

    Not ALL the text that this computer displays is pixelated, but it also isn’t just the Minimum theme. For example this very page I’m on right now within the WordPress Support forums also shows text as oddly pixelated. Could this be a font version issue? Perhaps the version of the fonts Minimum uses that are installed on this computer are different than my other computers?

    I’ve tried Googling around for answers, but can’t seem to figure it out. I tried messing with the Display settings and turning ClearType on, which only made the text that was previously clear appear blurry and had absolutely no effect on my Minimum blog.

    Does anybody have an ideas?

    The blog I need help with is: (visible only to logged in users)


    It’s the way those version of IE handle the Google fonts. Especially the one running XP.

    Hi there, if by IE you mean Internet Explorer, I use Chrome on this computer and my laptop. I do use IE on the one computer that displays things perfectly.

    But… something has happened. It is perfectly smooth now! The only explanation I have for this is that the settings I was messing with in my Control Panel for some reason had a lag in going into affect so I did not think it was doing anything. I will have to try this on my laptop when I am home later and hopefully that will be the end of it.

    I’m so happy my text is smooth now! :)
