This is comparison of XSF-Fonts with fonts that have not been optimized:
An other alternative for perfect onscreen performance are so-called pixel fonts, as their forms perfectly align to the computer screen’s underlying pixel grid. Pixel alphabets are normally designed to be a bit wider than print letters, with more space between them. This aids their legibility. Pixel fonts should usually be set at 8-point sizes, or higher. These fonts work quite well in on screen navigation systems, in flash web sites, and in other on screen text displays. As these fonts exude a particularly contemporary aura, they can be used sparingly in print applications as well. This sort of application is quite trendy among many graphic designers at the moment.
