That's all well and good, but some fonts have different glyphs that will
be used when this is turned on.  Microsoft's Web Fonts in particular
seem to each have a set of hinted bitmap equivalents for most of the
font sizes below ~16 that display with a slightly different, less
blurred look.  (The fonts are still quite anti-aliased, they're just
anti-aliased as if someone did them up carefully with MicroAngelo)
