When cleartype goes bad

Cleartype gone bad

See all those green ‘f’s?

It’s just a plain old Arial at 14px. Apparently cleartype does not like this font very much. There are similar artifacts at other sizes too. And, of course, it’s nothing new. Only today I’ve stumbled upon a so clearly visible example.

And one more thing – I *love* cleartype. It just hurts to see when it goes bad.
