    Have you seen this one?
    When you have ClearType turned off and view a website in IE (seen in 6, not sure about 7), the first capital W has the left side cut off.
    You can see it here:

    Not very handy, and I can’t find a solution so far.

    just checked it out. The one solution that i can suggest is changing font size if suitable also it strongly suggested to keep your style definitions in external file that way the browser will be able to cache it.
