If you`re looking to make your display easier to read, check out the ClearType capabilities included with XP. ClearType is designed to enhance the way text is rendered on LCD screens for improved reading, but it also looks good on traditional CRT monitors. You can enable ClearType through Display Properties - you can access this dialog box either through the Control Panel, or by simply right-clicking on a blank area of desktop. Once within the Display dialog box, click on the Appearance tab, then on the Effects button. Check the box to smooth screen fonts, and change its setting from Standard to ClearType.

Microsoft provides an online ClearType tuning applet to adjust how text is rendered within your browser.
