    erm, I'm really not all that keen on any of them I think you should try and make them clearer

    I'm with krycek -- all options are difficult to read. I'd go with simpler fonts (Verdana or Arial would be my first choices) and a much stronger background/textcolor contrast.

    What I was trying to say was not so much what fonts you are using, as the way you are doing it. You could use the same fonts and make it a lot clearer at the same time.

    as others said, none of them. I think that your problem is that you use softened pixel fonts. Why? as the name says, pixel fonts are supposed to be sharp

    btw, what does mOsEs mean?

    Ehum... I know who is Moses, but you already have a name: hallj999. Why do you end your posts with another name? It's just curiosity...

    A softened (or better said, smooth or anti-aliased) font it's a font that has the EDGES softened, and that's what in your case makes them appear blurry

    i dunoo why not sign your posts with a diff name is it against the posting rules? i have no idea why this wud have happened(the softening of the font) cos i just downloaded it from the site and used it, cud it be cos some fonts only work in cetain sizes, like multiples of 8 for instance, i dunno, ill have a look at how i can change it tonight, if i can be bothered ill mnake a flash menu. but i need to get back into flash cos i havnt done it in a while. mite leave that for the easter holidaywhen ive got some time. hallj999

    Usually are the graphics programs who add anti-alias to the fonts, and yes, you're right about the multiples allowed using pixel fonts

    btw: Of course you can use as many names as you want in your posts; I didn't said it was wrong or against the rules; simply strange
