  1) Implicit in his post - as I read it - was please go back to f14
fonts - he didnt like the change as he saw it. Or perhaps their was
another problem which make his fonts appear 'thin'.

  2) since he states he found no way to change fonts, how could he test
and make an alternate font suggestion? Hmmm ...

  3) A suggestion for you RS - IMO - for example - It would be a lot
better to simply ask politely - 'do you know of different fonts that
might look better or do you think its a display issue or something else'
or something ... instead of accusing him of not being constructive ...

  Thanks ..
