What is Font Smoothie?
Font Smoothie is a small application that will allow you to achieve more
control over your fonts. This program is targeted towards system fonts,
their sizes, and their font smoothing minimum size.

The MacOS systems only allow a select range of fonts to be used as system
fonts. This is the overall font that you see in the titles of windows,
menus, dialogs, etc. There is also a restriction on size: the font can only
be 12 point.

Font Smoothie will allow you to change the system font to any font that is
available in your system. It also allows any size font. Some fonts look
better bigger, others smaller, depending on the situation and font design.

A relatively new enhancement of the MacOS is the ability to have the
on-screen fonts anti-aliased (smoothed). This is real neat, makes the fonts
look much better, and add1s a touch of class to the OS. A restriction exists
that only allows the font size to be 12 point or higher. Font Smoothie
allows fonts as low as 9 point to be smoothed. Therefore, all fonts that are
on-screen, true-type, and 9 point or higher can be smoothed!
