    I am also using Window 98SE, and I don't seem to get this problem, even using
    Arial or Tahoma at 150pt size and at various zooms (100%, 200%, Page Width).

    All I can suggest is searching for a similar bug at
    and either attach a screenshot to the bug (if you find one) or create a new bug
    and attach a screenshot to it (if you don't find a similar bug). This will help
    us track down the problem and hopefully fix it - so you would be helping everyone
    who encounters this problem in the future.

    Cheers - Stephen.
