I typically use Fireworks MX for my image and graphics creation. I have noticed that any text I create in FWMX is not crisp (in other words it is fuzzy and not like HTML text) I know there are anti-aliasing options but they don' t do what I want. If you visit the link below and look at the text under the "Residential" or "Business" section, you'll see that it's not HTML text, yet it is excellent quality.
How is this done? And what are the fonts that allow for clear type at small point sizes?
Thank you in advance.

Turning anti-aliasing off on small fonts and especially 'pixel fonts' will definately improve the quality or sharpness of the font.
Another thing to keep in mind when working with the above font types is to be sure that the text element is on a 'whole' pixel. ie. the registration point for the text element is at, for example, x:4 ¦ y:12 and not x:4.7 ¦ y: 11.9.
At least in Flash if the text is off by a few increments it can show up fuzzy, as well.
