    Issues with reading fonts...

    Issues with reading fonts including in Netscape email and Java Applets

    Im reading in Windows Vista and its at 32-bit and 1280 by 960 pixels. Ive had this computer since July 31, 2013 and I remember since thats the day that the new Rise of The Triad was for sale. So about 2 weeks ago, Windows Update installed some new updates.

    Since the specific updates, its harder to read a font of 12-point or less including in Java applets and Netscape.net email. Its harder to see the bar at the top of capital I or T. Its harder to see underscores and periods. The lowercase letters t, i, and l sometimes look alike. Capital A looks like that Greek letter that I think is Sigma.

    Can you remember that Henrietta Lacks was an American who had died from cervical cancer and scientists have sequenced her mutated cancer cell genome? Ive heard of her before. Anyways, somebody sent me an email to my Netscape.net account saying that we should read, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The Garamond italics font is so bad and unreadable that it almost looks like, The Immorial Iife of VIenriella Iacks. I knew instantly that I've had enough of this new default web font. Also, one of the guys from Computer Science sent email text about a web page about his kennel and I thought that it was a Computer Science kernel. I had to re-read it.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrietta_Lacks
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kernel (Computer Science)

    Two things:
    -I want to apologize in advance if I ever politely misread one of the things that you type.
    -What is the best web font to change to in Windows for reading? Please help.

    The fonts problem seems to have cleared up.

    Yesterday, I saw info about Henrietta Lacks from #18 to #20 in a magazine that I have a subscription to: http://discovermagazine.com/2015/may/22-20-things-about-immortality
    That reminded me that I posted here about Henrietta and fonts. The fonts problem with Netscape email and Java Applets has cleared up in the last 2 months and I dont know why. Maybe a Windows Update fixed it, I guess.
