Does anyone know how to make Mozilla/Netscape etc. use KDE's anti-aliased fonts? The desktop looks wonderful with these but I can't seem to get Mozilla and other non-KDE based applications to use them..

thanks!

I installed a True Type font server and everything renders wonderfully now (under X generally, I don't use KDE)... Have a look on http://linux.tucows.com for one.

Thanks Jamie.. I have a TrueType server and it renders KDE-based and most Gnome applications beautifully.. I think it's just applications that weren't written with KDE in mind that don't come out properly. Maybe it's KDE being odd, or maybe there's some configuration in Mozilla that can be changed. Anyone using Mozilla with KDE with anti-aliased fonts?

On Netscape I have just set my default Font to the TT fonts and its fine. I don't see why the same won't work in Mozilla...
