Have you hated how WPF has blurry text depending on what happens? Well, .Net 4.0 and WPF 4.0 fixes that. If you try out a version after Visual Studio 2010 beta 2, you can use these fixes as well. The MSDN Text blog outlines how to fix your text and the why / how of some of the blurriness. A lot comes from display screens not having a high enough DPI and subpixel rendering. But enough excuses and how can you fix it? Here is an example of how to do the look of the picture above.
<StackPanel> <TextBlock> Hello World ... Ideal text formatting </TextBlock> <TextBlock TextOptions.TextFormattingMode="Display"> Hello World ... Display text formatting </TextBlock> </StackPanel>
The blog posting talks about additional settings as well.
