False alarm: I'd forgotten that I never turned ClearType on after I
formatted this laptop.  FF and Webkit people, you're doing fine.  ^_^

That's something I'm going to have to keep in mind when selecting body
fonts, though...  I suspect it's not a huge deal as Vista has it
turned on by default, but there are still plenty of people running XP
(like me) that it's something to think about for a while.
