Eeeewwww ugly fonts!

Ugh, why do my fonts look so forkin’ ugly!?! (in the news box)

They’re all blurred and jaggy and ugly. This is with Verdana set to 9 with Anti-alias set to Readibility (in flash8) with Auto Kern on.

I’ve read Kirupa’s Legible Font tutorial and all my clips are on 0,0xy positions and have no decimal sizes so I wanna know why the heck the text loooks so ■■■■ ugly, I thought Macromedia would’ve fixed this issue by now.

can anyone think what the problem might be?
