6.0.2: Input cells' font darker now?

I just installed 6.0.2 under Windows XP on a new system (when my old 
system died that had been running 6.0.1).  Now the font in Input cells 
seems much darker and thicker than I am accustomed to seeing -- on many 
different systems.

Did something change in this regard, either in the fonts themselves or 
in the default settings for Input cells?

I'm using a different graphics card now (although at the same resolution 
and on the same LCD monitor).  And at the moment I haven't yet installed 
Adobe Type Manager (although since Mathematica does not use PostScript 
fonts under Windows, I cannot imagine why that's an issue).
