According to this URL:
there is a problem if colour is not used when anti-aliasing. I confirmed
that Revolution flds do not use colour to anti-alias in Mac OS 10.4.3. When
magnified, the legible text in Word or SuperCard shows the use of colour
and Revolution does not.
I believe this issue must have been introduced by OS 10.4.3.
I have made a Bugzilla report.
