How can I make clear/crisp text on website buttons?

by Trigli / November 5, 2013 1:56 PM PST


I've been working on a website, specifically its buttons, and no matter how I save the file or how I create the text, the text on the buttons, when loaded onto the website, is always blurry or slightly blobby. Has one ran into a solution to this problem before?

By using the style option in the button tag you can make the button fonts clear or bold

Assuming the buttons are an image, make them the exact same size (in pixels) on the webpage (attributes of the image tag) as they are in the file on the server. Then they should look exactly as they look in your image processing program.
Any scaling will make the image blurry.
