Font Smoothing

Is there any way to do font smoothing (kerning/anti-aliasing) for fonts I type with in VB?

Windows 95 with Plus! installed, Windows 98, and Windows 2000 all support anti-aliasing for fonts natively. However, this is subject to certain restrictions:

1) The display must be set to a non-paletted display mode (e.g. 16-bit colour).
2) The font in question must be a TrueType font.
3) The font must be a certain size. There is a range of sizes between which a font will not anti-alias: for smaller or larger fonts it will do so.

If you want anti-aliased support where Windows wouldn't normally anti-alias there's no simple way to do it in any language.
