I agree. Just installed 7.3 and the fonts are unreadable in many apps such
as the xterm. I've tried antialiasing on and off, it doesn't make a
difference. Whats up with this and how do you fix it?

Nope Ive been using Tahoma for a long time now. Its not just tahoma that is
funny, its most of them.
If you try turning of Anti-Aliasing on fonts below a certain point site (
Xftconfg ) you get even worse results.
Ive done the fetchmsttfonts thing just to be certain.

There is something weird with the font setup. believe me.
