Holger, Have you guys (RT) considered doing your own font rasterizing (perhaps using Freetype)? It would certainly look more professional than using the aliased X11 fonts. I'm curious to know if the Windows version of View displays fonts with anti-aliasing. Will RT support the new XFree86 extensions to display anti-aliased fonts? -Karl
