font-smooth Redirect 1

This feature is non-standard and is not on a standards track. Do not use it on production sites facing the Web: it will not work for every user. There may also be large incompatibilities between implementations and the behavior may change in the future.


The font-smooth CSS property controls the application of anti-aliasing when fonts are rendered.

Note: Webkit implements something similar with a different name: -webkit-font-smoothing and different values: none, antialiased and subpixel-antialiased. However, just like font-smooth, this is non-standard and should not be used.


font-smooth:  auto | never | always | [ <absolute size> || <length> ]


Though present in early (2002) drafts of CSS3 Fonts, font-smooth has been removed from this specification and is currently not on the standard track.
