But if the PICT is always displayed at the same size (as in a dialog box) 
you'll get the smoothing on systems with TrueType Chicago, and what 
you're seeing on the ones without; or, if you use the "base" font for 
both, you _might_ be able to get what you're looking for - but smooth on 
newer systems, blocky on older ones.

A bitmap _made_ on a Mac with TrueType will be exactly the same on any 
system - smoothing and all!
