ClearType keeps 'em guessing

Las Vegas, NV. - 20 November 1998
The most common question asked by COMDEX attendees who witnessed Bill Gates' ClearType demo was 'How does it work?' Unfortunately Microsoft workers demonstrating the technology were keeping tightlipped over the exact details. This only served to encourage attendees to offer their own theories and explanations. Baffled attendees spent up to an hour closely examining 15 demonstration pages showing a range of sample texts, in various fonts, languages and type sizes.
