Webpage Text Appears Jagged

SUMMARY: If text contained in browsed pages inside Internet Explorer 7 appears jagged, try this tweak.

1. Click on the "Tools" button in the toolbar, selecting "Internet Options".

2. When the "Internet Options" dialog box appears, select the "Advanced" tab.

3. Scroll down to the "Multimedia" section and check "Always use ClearType for HTML".

4. Click "OK" to close the dialog boxes.
