Customizing KDE Fonts

Just did two little customizations, to ease the transition from Windows. Namely, fonts. In KDE there is Tahoma font available. It is just a matter of setting the system to use it instead of Sans Serif. Adding anti-aliasing with

sub-pixel rendering: RGB
hinting style: Full

makes text in windows look pretty good. Another thing was adding Verdana from the Windows installation. The reason for this is that one of my sites uses Verdana font for the text (bad, bad coding) and it looks terrible under Linux. Adding Verdana font to the system will resolve the problem for me at least temporarily. Need to add a task to my to-do list for removing that Verdana from the site and setting a proper font settings.
