    pixel fonts and dynamic text

    I use these great fonts that I downloaded from miniml.com and they work fine static. However, for dynamic text they don't appear correctly when the font isn't installed on the user's machine. I know the font is embeded because i checked the report. And the miniml.com site has no problem doing it for their preloaders. I don't know what to do.
    Any one ever deal with this issue?

    The problem is that pixel fonts need to be snapped to pixels to work right. When embedding them it changes their size slightly, so they generally look like crap afterwards, as they are no longer exactly on a pixel. Check out this article for more info.
