Rec: TrueType Web Core Fonts
Title: TrueType Web Core Fonts
Platform: Windows 95/98/ME/NT/2000/Mac
Download Size: 3.63MB (All fonts)
Install these high quality TrueType fonts, and whenever you visit a Web site that specifies them, you'll see pages exactly as the site designer intended.
I was comparing exactly the same pages as rendered by NS4.76 and IE5.5 on a W98 system. The IE5.5 rendering seemed muddy in comparison to NS.
Remembered that there were "web font" updates available for free from Microsoft. Got them all. Installed them. Now I am a happy camper. The IE and NS font renderings were now equally sharp.
I don't know if they are distributed with other systems (eg. W2K), but it does not hurt to have them.
Note: Several of these font upgrades will need a restart before they will be used. Install all of them before restarting.
