I can tell you one thing. Very, very few people proportionally use a DPI other than 96.

I am the first reporter of this problem, and now as far as my usage, AB displays properly, but I found some pages become small or big.
But I can not agree with DrDrrae answer because it is very difficult for the display user of more than 1920x1200 with 96 DPI to identify the characters.
For such users m120 DPI is necessary.
I think this problem may be related to Windows itself because by changing to 120 DPI, other problems other than AB arrises (Sidebar gadgets are displayed abnormally, etc).

According to Microsoft
Follow-up on High DPI resolution wrote:Based on the data we have, only a very small percentage of users are currently enabling the high DPI feature.
I'm not pulling stuff out of thin air.

They go on to say
Follow-up on High DPI resolution wrote: and the version of IE which shipped on [XP and Vista] had significant issues with displaying mismatched font sizes and poorly scaled web pages.
I'm not sure how IE 8 fixes this issue, if it does so at all or what effects Avant has on it.

Avant doesn't support larger font size (120PDI) under Vista Aeroglass. It looks all smudgy, like looking thought grandma's glasses. I can't use this program at my new machine.

Merged. Please search before posting. -DrDrrae

Could you show us a screenshot? We can't replay the problem.
Show us how the page looks like in Avant and how it does in IE. Thanks.

Furthermore, what's your monitor resolution and are you using 64-bit Vista? What's your Text Size? Medium?
