Clients will tend to get an idea in their head sometimes, and the clients cohorts will tend to agree with the "alpha-client".
I'd suggest just using no anti-aliasing. Then of course don't show the final product in your portfolio.
The gif of crisp antialias is in no way "fuzzy".
Because the detailed forms of the letters are mapped to the pixel grid (aliased), they will look fuzzy. There are a couple things you can do to minimize the problem. First, use a font that has been specifically designed to work well on screen. The fonts Microsoft tweaked for IE are good, although they're now quite common. I think I saw some fonts on Veer that mentioned they were designed to work on screen, but I wasn't looking for screen fonts, so I don't remember what they were.
Second...make your font images twice as big as you want them, save, then reduce to 50% (or four times larger and reduce to 25% of the original size). See, for example, the differences between the aliasing in these samples, (all Arial, an MS screen font). I think that the reduced 36pt samples look better than the 18pt samples,
Thank you all very much. I'll try all your suggestions.... Fingers crossed.
