I realise that this is probably a FAQ but I have read various documents down
the years about font de-uglification, and I do have xfstt running on my box.
www.scan.co.uk is quite readable on Netscape (try it without xfstt) but my
latest bugbear is www.byte.com. The sidebar categories down the LHS are
barely readable. These are perfectly visible under IE or Navigator on
VMware/'doze on the same box.
It's not an intrinsic browser thing, because it's OK under Navigator on

look fine under kfm, though that has other issues (which I imagine are fixed
with konqueror) and it looks OK under Mozilla (postM16 - build 2000061408 -

So the burning question is - is it possible to bludgeon Netscape 4.76 into
displaying those items legibly ?
