    Device Font Anti-aliasing on Windows

    1ndivisible Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I'm using a device font in a Flex 4.1 Preloader.

       

      I'm using the following textformat ...

       

       

      var percentLoadedFormat:TextFormat = new TextFormat( "_typewriter", 20, 0x333333, null, null, null, null, null, TextAlign.CENTER );

       

      ... to style a TextField using percentLoadedText.defaultTextFormat = percentLoadedFormat;

       

      I get a nice looking monospace/typewriter front in Mac browsers, but in windows (FFox/IE7/Chrome) the text is not Antialiased and looks awful.

       

      The text is not masked and is positioned at whole pixels.
