comment Font-face loaded on Windows look really bad. Which fonts are you using that render better?
Your post make me doubt. I checked my settings, and I did remembered that when I was installing the OS Vista, I reduced to minimum all the effect to improve performance. And guess what? Cleartype was disable. I am such a stupid person, sorry for the incovenience. Now fonts look much much better, definitely readable. So know my question is more: from which OS Cleartype is not installed on windows?

Koiyu It would be great if you would give an explanation, because otherwise I would write something about Less is more.

+1 I agree the quotation of Antoine de Saint-Exupe, but at the same time -1 because I believe that "Less is more" , so no voting :D

comment How to choose the right color to get the wanted effect in web design?
@Jichao: I wanted that you know more about RGB and CYMK, because the addition of all the colour of RGB it make a white color, while the addition of CYMK make a Black colour. So you know that when you having #FF defined in your code, you are going to lighter colors.

comment Are Macs preferable to PCs for handling graphics software?
@Jaips: Interesting articles, even so looking at the results on pc (without questioning the how) font just looks ugly. For this reason I say that I prefer mac as font rendering, and with font-face it is really a freedom in web design about Typography.

@Ghoppe: I just talk about my experience with the software I found more easy to hack something on windows than on osx. I am not a programmer, and I do not use console commands too much or studied any language. I tried to make some script after hours I couldn't do a simple cut and place of files with applescript (move a file from a folder to another folder) but it feels that you have to be an expert programmer more than using windows.

No it is not the same, Hinting doesn't solve the issue. I am already using the solution published on the web about the Font-Face that Fontsquirell is using. What I am looking it is: even if is not rendered well some font, which one looks decent enough to use on the pc? and on which font size? I am looking for a list of safe font at safe size. A kind of "best practice" reference.

comment Is it possible to modify a rounded rectangle's radius in Photoshop?
That already would be different for me, it is a bigger problem. I am ok if you guys think that it is relevant. I do not want to argue. To me there is no much overthinking, sometimes doing the monkey job it is quicker

comment Are there examples of software that use a dark colour scheme?
If you check the question I said "to a software design", and if you read the question it is exactly the difference that I am making because the client do not want a web design.

comment Is it possible to modify a rounded rectangle's radius in Photoshop?
@Calvin Huang: I agree on what you are saying, I am pointing out that what we are talking about is not an effect that you need many steps that takes you several minutes, it is one setting to change in the toolbar. We are talking about few seconds fix that he already knows how to do it. Because of this it feels a bit like laziness. I understand that Jichao is learning photoshop because I saw another basic question about slicing and I feel that he needs to study a bit more a book of photoshop or spending a bit more time with it. So it would help him much more in that way.

I think that it would be great as well if you explain as well what is the vaule of white and black, red green and blue. And explain about difference between CYMK and RGB.
