Post subject:  Getting the right font

I am trying to get a drawing ready to post, but on my computer, the fonts don't seem to come out right using MS Paint. The Arial's have a funny looking "O" in front of them and have all sorts of gray areas around the letters. The closest match appears to be MS Sans Serif, but it is not the same. I also cannot get the font sizes to match up using the values on the templates.

Any ideas?

One most XP/Vista/7 Systems you have two options:
  1. Turn off Clear Type
    • Google is your friend here. NOTE: It will effect the way system fonts are drawn, and thus your system will look uglier than before
  2. Use a Program like Paint.NET instead.
    1. It offers the ability to turn off text smoothing on a case by case basis.
    2. It has layer support.
    3. It has transparency support.
  • If you use Windows programs such as Paint or Paint.NET, the text sizes are not what is listed.
    1. Large Text is size 10
    2. Small Text is size 7.5
