IMO, Client Access for Windows always presented better. The characters
looked sharper and the kerning was better. Oh well...

While that's tangential to the subject of this thread, I want to
express strong support for this opinion. So many ACS users seem to
think it's "just as good" visually, and I have to imagine that *for
them* it really is, because their eyes/brains work in such a way that
they don't really notice, or they use fonts that *do* render well in
ACS[1].

I will just quibble with the term "kerning" because 5250 screens are
monospaced grids of characters, and thus no kerning could occur, even
theoretically.

[1] I've spent WAY more time than I care to admit trying to get a
setup that looks as good to me in ACS as my current iSeries Access
setup. I think I *might* have encountered some fonts that looked about
as good as *those fonts* can look, when rendered in ACS. I'm not sure,
because even if I did find such fonts, they didn't work as well *for
me* as my choice in iSeries Access.
