LOGFONT          fontData;
fontData.XXX = ...;
fontData.XXX = ...;
fontData.XXX = ...;
fontData.lfQuality = 6 /*CLEARTYPE_COMPAT_QUALITY*/;
yourClearTypeFont = CreateFontIndirect(&fontData);

they forgot to define the constant CLEARTYPE_COMPAT_QUALITY so just use 6 (u can use 5 too i dont remeber the difference)
