Pages on have terrible looking fonts. I seriously doubt the problem is on their end. I have ClearType disabled on my Windows Server 2003.

Pages such as look terrible at my end; here's a screenshot of a section of that page:

It looks the same whether I view from Internet Explorer 8 or Chrome. I don't know of any other websites where the fonts are so rough-looking. How do I fix this?

It's probably because you have ClearType disabled. Some fonts are made with the assumption that it is enabled; they look really bad otherwise. Try enabling it and seeing if they look better.
