#7373: Pidgen default msn font looks bad
 Reporter:  daf               |     Owner:  khc

 The font applied to messages sent by pidgen users to Windows Live
 Messenger client looks terrible.

 All pidgen messages are displayed in "MS Sans Serif"
 [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microsoft_Sans_Serif] a raster font that is
 unable to benefit from Clear Type and making it look pixelated.

 Please fix this, this causes usability issues for me (that no other client
 does) and makes me actively request people to stop using pidgen which
 isn't good for anyone.
