You cannot judge typography from screen, no matter how much you magnify.
It's just not the same thing.

If you're trying to judge the look of a whole page, of course that's true. However, for the look of a single character or a small area, I completely disagree. And that's what we're talking about here.

Anyone who has ever designed a font can tell you the same thing.

And what gives you the impression that I haven't also designed fonts? In fact, I have.

In the end, it's about how things look on paper.

Then how come when I actually measure how things look on paper, you discount that evidence as poorly prepared -- even though it exactly matches yours? I think that's not cricket.

Without proper
paper print-outs, I don't see how you can have a substantive point-of-view on how the output looks.

Again, agreed if we're talking about the whole page, which so far we have not really been doing.
