I'm using FireFox 0.9 to view your site ad the font looks weird. It's hard to explain , I can read everthing but the letters on the screen look like they were printed with printer that is running out of ink.

Any idea how I can fix that?

I'm running on WinXP from work.

I don't know. I am using (in this order) the following fonts for the site:

Bitstream Vera Sans, Verdana, Helvetica, Times New Roman, Times

Peradventure you have Bitstream but they are rendering poorly? What happens if you size the fonts up or down? (Control-MouseWheel)

Lastly, if it continues to look bad, you can modify the site's layout yourself by going to your member page (click on "davidm's page" in the menu) and click on Layout preferences. Change the fonts in the CSS from that page.

Let me know what you find, please!
