Hmm ... I find the default fonts used by Mathematica 5.0 running on Mac OS 10.3.5 quite readable. But perhaps it is only that I've become used to the appearance of Mathematica on my Mac. In any case, your best bet would be to edit the Default StyleSheet so that it uses fonts you find more readable. Here I am assuming the issue is with the choice of font made by Mathematica.

You also might want to go to Appearances in System Preferences and change the your Font Smoothing preferences. Look at the bottom two items. Note, I believe you have to logout and back in before changes here take effect.
