I'm using Netscape 4.06. The problem is that it uses messy fonts (in the web-pages). The scaling is awfull! I've tried to change the settings in the <Preferneces> but either I get nice large fonts and ugly small fonts or I get nice small fonts but ugly small ones.

The problem is the X font server. Try to install xfsft, the truetype font server built on FreeType. You can get it from www.freetype.org in projects (i believe). After installing xfsft you van use verdana, times new roman, trebuchet, georgia and others from the microsoft typogrphy page.

Hope this helps,
