[Feature Request] Subpixel antialiasing for string meters

It would be very nice to have prettier string. Subpixel looks much better than greyscale antialiasing.
Especially since Rainmeter is mostly used on low-ppi devices.

If I remember correctly, there are issues with sub-pixel anti-aliasing (cleartype) when compositing with alpha components.

This won't be high on our list since there is likely nothing we can do about it...unless D2D/DirectWrite improve in this area.
