Maybe it's the font - or the antialiasing...
But I have long gotten the sense that when I render text, that it's not as
"crisp" as I would have expected.

jr recommended that I use
+w1024 +h768 +am3 +a0.001 +r2 -j +q9 +ag1
So that's what I'm looking at presently,

The "e"'s in Persistence look, to my eye, "less solidly bounded" or "less fully
and completely filled with black" than I ... would like?  Have expected?
The legs of the "n" seem particularly bad.  They're ... mottled.
Same with the "r", "m" ...
the "p" in povray, the "g" in org.

I mean, maybe it's not an unexpected thing for most people --- maybe they don't
I sure don't notice many of the "flaws" and "artefacts" that other people
instantly pick up on.

I will post the current version of the render.
_I_ can detect it at 100%, I don't think I'm completely imagining some sort of
issue at 200%, and at 500%, that first "N" is an atrocity, and "f" is not
looking good either...

Yes, I understand that - aside from scaling perpendicular to the viewing axis,
there's likely not a viable way to bolden text aside from changing over to
another font.   But it's a sample scene, so I'm trying to stick with the 3 fonts
that we ship with.

Maybe I'll just scale x*1.something and see if that's good 'nuff.
