  How *didn't* it work?  Are you talking about the text in a
particular place or results from some code you wrote?

  Does the result look as blurry as a normal TextMoprh on screen?  Or
even blurrier?  If it is the former, that is how it looks.  If the
latter, code like the following gives me a reasonable result.

t := TextMorph new.
t beAllFont: (StrikeFont familyName: 'BitstreamVeraSans' size: 18).
             "Choose your favorite font here."
t contents: 'ABC'.
f := Form extent: 100 at 100 depth: 32.
f fillColor: Color white.
t drawOn: f getCanvas.
f display
