Talking Fonts problems

When i browse some internet web pages it shows me a small text that u hardly see or i see funny looking characters. Can anyone tell me why is this happening?
I don't have all the fonts or what?

many reasons. The fonts are set to be so small; you don't have correct fonts installed; your encoding differs from the sites one ....

If you're using mozilla

edit>preferences>appearance>fonts>minimum font size

raise that value and the tiniest stuff will be bigger. Doesn't address cause, but may help with symptoms.

Ugly fonts


The font problem still seems to anny me as well. I just resize. Make the font to 150% or so.

Page rendering depends upon the makup of the *TML code, so the more standard the page, the better view for us!

I have found that if you upgraded to Redhat that maybe the font settings may not be correct.

You can find a good resource by search on google for "font deuglification".
