    there is a setting in windows appearance setting somewhere specifically for LCD dispalys. Do a google search for "how to enable True type".
    It is probable that you have had to use HD resolutions such as 720P or 1080i to allow the hdmi input to recognise the signal and the scaling of the TV back to its native resolution (probably 1366 x 768) is contributing to the poor text.
    My Toshiba 32" inch had slightly better text over VGA at 1280 x 1024 but for playback of Bluray i needed the DVI to HDMI route and 1920 x 1080i resolution. Still, general use of XP is still quite acceptable.

    Shouldn't it be "clear type"?
