Anyone else noticed that this Puppy boards font seems less clear than other phpBB boards?


Click the thumbnail and then right-click and select view image to see the full sized sort of differences that I'm seeing.

The fonts in your three examples all look exactly the same to me. Maybe I don't understand what you mean.

Yeah, I can't discern much of a difference between the three examples, either. Do you have your browser set to allow all pages to use their own (chosen) fonts, or have that overridden with a specific font?

I have it set to allow pages to use their own fonts.

With the puppy web site that has seems to put more of a white shadow around characters than other sides, for instance a zero character looks more white in the inner circle of that character than on other sites. Which overall tends to make text appear a bit more blurry in general.

I've taken some comparable text parts of your screenshot and blown them up to 400%, and some other text from the Puppy and Debian forums (see below) - I can't see any differences beyond the ones caused by the different text and background colors. (The Puppy forum has black text, while the others' is a medium grey.) Generally, a stronger contrast between foreground and background color will cause more "hard edges", or "white shadows" - look at the "Test" text, it's the exact same font in different grey shades. (The effect is a bit different here, because my system seems to use greyscale rather than colored font smoothing.)
