Panther Text Rendering

Tonza illustrates my comment about how Lucida Grande looks narrower and blacker on Panther.

10.2 vs 10.3

John Gruber explains how on-screen typography is doomed to suck:

Non-anti-aliased text is dorky but sharp. Anti-aliased text is elegant but fuzzy. You can’t win, because truly winning would require on-screen text that is both elegant and sharp, and that requires higher-resolution displays than those we have today.

Which is true, but I’m not asking to win. Just let me pick my poison.
