It does better -- it also displays all scalable fonts at 100DPI, which
IMO should be the default.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work with Netscape. See the font HOWTO (-;

Making the computer use TTFs is easy. Redhat's font server has been
doing it for some time ( at least 6.1, possibly 6.0 ) . Getting WYSIWYG
printing to work with TTFs is somewhat more ambitious.
