Certain fonts are not smooth when magnified on specific websites in Internet Explorer.


This can occur if the website uses "embedded" fonts. This issue can be overcome by disabling the use of embedded fonts within Internet Explorer's security settings.

To do this:

1. Open Internet Explorer's "Tools" menu with ALT + T
2. ARROW DOWN to "Internet Options" and press ENTER. The "Internet Options" dialog box opens.
3. CONTROL + TAB to the "Security" page.
4. Select the "Custom Levels" button.
5. From the list of available options, ARROW DOWN to "Font Download", and select the corresponding radio button "Disable" to prevent these fonts from being downloaded.
6. TAB to OK and press ENTER. Your changes will be saved.
7. Restart Internet Explorer.
