LCD Text support in JavaFX 2.1 Developer Preview
By javafx4you on Jan 30, 2012
LCD sub-pixel text has become a must-have for many Windows desktop users, who have become accustomed to its superior legibility and less blocky appearance at smaller point sizes over hinted black and white text, and being sharper than grey scale anti-aliased text at the same size.
For the JavaFX 2.1 release we've added the ability to use Windows-style LCD sub-pixel rendering. All the JavaFX UI controls will be LCD-text enabled by default on Windows, as will "WebView", the Webkit-based node for rendering Web content.
Here is a fairly representative example of "before" and "after" LCD text on a Windows system:
1. WebView text rendering without LCD text support
2. WebView text rendering with CD text support
Note: make sure both images at being viewed at proper size (1020x700px). Depending on your browser DPI setting, your browser may scale images to fit, and the second image nay bnot display like the original.
