From the MSDN Help:

EnableVisualStyles:
This method enables Windows XP visual styles for the application. Controls will draw with visual styles if the control and the operating system supports it. To have an effect, EnableVisualStyles must be called before creating any controls in the application; typically, EnableVisualStyles is the first line in the Main function. A separate manifest is not required to enable visual styles when calling EnableVisualStyles.

SetCompatibleTextRenderingDefault
Sets the application-wide default for the UseCompatibleTextRendering property defined on certain controls.

UseCompatibleTextRendering
Gets or sets a value that specifies whether text rendering should be compatible with previous releases of Windows Forms.
