Text displayed in some core fonts appears blurred in Internet Explorer 9 on a computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, Windows 7, or Windows Server 2008 R2

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/08/02

Right now there are so many ways to display text, that – depending on your physical display (CRT, LCD, etc) – all behave differently.

Even Microsoft has released a patch (see the below quote from KB 2545698 that got released last month).

This issue occurs because of a design change to how Internet Explorer 9 renders text. By default, Internet Explorer 9 uses sub-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using DirectWrite, whereas Internet Explorer 8 uses whole-pixel positioned ClearType to render text by using the Microsoft Windows graphics device interface (GDI).

I’m wondering if there is a way to make it work ‘right’ on every type of display combination.

Do you know any?
