Hi,

There's a way to make your fonts look even better ( subjective of
course ) if you are using Ubuntu 8.04.
By default the BCI is not enabled so any hints provided by the
typographer are sort of ignored.

However there's a neat way - the auto-hinter - to overcome this and
use the hints.

Here's a shameless plug for my blog post regarding the same and how to
enable it --

let me know your comments of course !
