does anyone know a hack to force fonts <=8 points to smooth too? the control panel poplist only goes down to 8. the mixture of smooth fonts and non-smooth fonts is really disturbing...

Yeah you can. Sizes 0 and up, in fact. He he he...

I'd have to agree that you'll probably end up with a headache reading antialiased text at 8 pts and below... Unless you have a very big monitor...

thanks folks...

though tinkertool had a setting for font smoothing size constraints, it didn't seem to make a diff in chimera (which i believe is cocoa).

the thing is that i have a rev b. tibook and 1152x768 on the nice big screen is like running 800x600 on a 14" ... even "small" fonts are quite "big"

i almost shelled out for a 800 with the really nice screen, but i figured i'd hold out for a 1gig...
