I was always a big sucker for registration and optimizing rendering — even in the days of dense pixels many people still roll old school. I often fixed antialiasing by hand on display type, but never made the leap to actually spec fonts at fractional weights that let them render exactly in the x or cap height to snap to full pixels. That’s neat.
Miguel, maybe we can look at our font stacks in OPL under a new lens. ;)
Unless I’m missing something, this really just seems like a less reliable DIY version of font hinting.
A font with good hinting should render sharply without adjustment. A font with bad hinting will not be fixed by scaling its cap height to a whole number of pixels (on your specific screen — 1 CSS pixel ≠ 1 physical display pixel).
