If the fonts on The Standard are looking a bit blocky and you are using Windows XP, try enabling ClearType: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306527.
ClearType was later introduced as an operating system feature in Windows XP, where it was kept turned off by default. In Windows Vista, ClearType is turned on by default. In Microsoft Office 2007, Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Live Messenger ClearType is turned on by default, even if it is not enabled throughout the operating system.
