his webpage looks just fine to me (slackware 14, firefox 15) but then again I think 9pin dot matrix printers are the shiznit

Subject: [Chugalug] Ugly font on Tim Berners-Lee's home page
 

Has anyone else noticed this issue with Palatino/URW Palladio L (such as
on Tim Berners-Lee's home page), coming out all wobbly, with different
letters rendering at different heights? I have specifically observed it
on Debian with default settings, does anyone know of other distros it
does or does not affect? It seems like it would be fairly simple for a
distro to either turn off hinting or use autohinting for URW Palladio L
by default.
