I've convinced myself that the problem is nothing new to Panther or 
Mathematica 5.0. I had been using a "haxie" named Silk 
( to enable Quartz text smoothing in Carbon 
apps, and it no longer works in Panther. Supposedly an update of Silk 
is forthcoming soon.

And with any luck a Cocoa version of the Mathematica front end will 
happen in our lifetime. (?)

BTW, Panther is well worth the upgrade.
