While working on his project, faced with a strange "rendering" of fonts in Internet Explorer 9.

The shadow fell exactly on the browser, so the rest of the Internet browsers, whether Chrome, Opera or even eighth Internet Explorer — everything looks great. That is clearly in comparison:

Internet Explorer 9 beta vs. Boomer.by



Moreover, when we look at the problem, it turned out that IE9 beta on top of wilful squeezed the font width.

Also see that the smoothing filter was to work a little differently when compared with the previous versions of the browser.

And now I come to the question then :-)

Yes, it is clear that this is a beta, there is a chance that all will get well-fixed, but you never know.

Yes, simultaneously with the publication of this article trying to send bug(?) in support of Microsoft (he was still a quest, with a permanent installation it is unclear what additional plugins, without which the message in support of then will not send).

And yet... If someone has already faced similar problem and, suddenly, suddenlyknows her decision not to share the answer?

And even if you know that there is no solution, it will also be a great help :-)

How it works hardware acceleration using DirectWrite rasterizer and the fonts in WPF. To influence it is not possible, it will always give other metrics than GDI, for the reason that you use different methods of smoothing and hinting. The only solution is to adapt, to make the layout "more rubber", without referring to the metrics of the fonts (or rather the lengths of the strings).
\r
PS Also the site will look in Firefox 4 with acceleration enabled using DirectWrite.

Interestingly, the rendering of the font in menu in IE9 it painfully to Arial Black was similar, although on the website it won't be used (all the standard Arial).

If the new filter is smoothing so it modifies something very strange. Just blur and bold such a radical effect should not give.

Well, the tag X-UA-Compatible solves this problem, although it's not really fair to IE9

Something you have not joined.
In the first case, the letters have become fatter and wider, while in the second they became thinner.
More like two different bug — in the first case, Arial Black instead of Arial, in the second case, more smoothing.
\r
And hardware acceleration in FF I disabled because of this WPF — smoothing.
