Perhaps you have anti-aliasing turned on, and you find the result too blurry? I,
for one, prefer anti-aliasing, because it makes text less jagged.
To turn it off (might be different in Vista): 

* right-click the desktop, choose Properties
* click Appearance tab
* click Effects button
* uncheck Use the following method to smooth edges of screen fonts

P.S. Use plain text, not HTML, for this mailing list.
