I am venturing into the world of WPF and have followed a few tutorials before making myself a template for the basics. I created a basic windows application and added a menu with a few menuitems and also a statusbar with a statusbaritem. All worked out very well and it all functioned correctly. However, it looks really bad. The text doesnt look right, almost like the font is pixelated or bleeding into its background. I have not created any styles so its basic text and so on.  Is there something i am missing in the markup that makes things look better? I have tried this on a few machines and they all look the same. I am not using an IDE at this time since everything is still in beta and my work machine cant afford to have beta stuff on it. Is there something i need in the csproj file to make it look better or is this just how it is?
Thanks,
