>>I was shocked and dismayed (*smile*) to have seen something looking funny when one of my apps was running on an iMac 333. The letters tops appeared squared off. I checked to see what font was being used and had to resort to amazement...just plain old Geneva.<< I have seen a similar problem, it was the new OS 8.5 feature that antialiases fonts on screen w/o help from ATM. Go into the "Appearance" control panel and disable it totally or set it to work only on fonts bigger than what it was set for. If you use one of the pre-programmed "looks" it sets this to, I think, about 12 point and that makes some of the more popular sizes of the most common fonts look bad.
