Internal Server Error
what the voices in my head tell me to write

Today I am doing more checking of ingentaconnect stuff with IE7.
I had IE7 and IE6 open at once and suddenly noticed the colour of the text was different!
It took a while to work it out. I turned on the ClearType thingy when I installed IE7. For a small font size on a light background hardly a single pixel is the rendered at the specified colour. All the fuzziness combines to make the text look lighter overall. I guess the reverse would be true if you put it on a dark background.
It did make me scratch my head for a while. Someone is bound to complain about it too.
