Well shoot, that explains a whole bunch of stuff. I never realized it was the Apple anti aliasing that was doing that. Now just a few zoom in and outs while turning that on and off I can now see what the anti aliasing was doing. I thought that was just on fonts or something.<br><br>Thanks for a neat tip. Now I ned to get up and get some coffee to allow my eyeballs to readjust.<br><br><br><br>
