Problem with text looking funky on windows… maybe an anti aliasing problem?

OK well I work on a mac. I have two sites that I have been working and all the text looks fine on my mac…But when I viewed the sites on a PC the text looked crappy. It looks much harsher (like its not ant aliased, or at least not anti aliased properly the way mac os renders it. )The confusing thing is not all websites look like that on a PC. Does anyone know what the problem is with this? I have posted to images to demonstrate the issue. And also have the CSS code for my text on page below. Thanks!

BODY {font-family: "Times New Roman", Times,
"New Century Schoolbook", serif;}
H1, H2, H3, H4, H5, H6 {font-family: Arial, Helvetica,
Verdana: sans-serif;

Are you remembering that a person can over ride the font you have set for one of the 8 fonts you have listed?
You may have one comp. set for (default) "Times" and the other set for "Times New Roman."

The mac and Windows don't follow the same guidelines have you

Mac is known for making there text bigger and bolder and more spaced. Windows is the opposite.

That's the devil of the beast there though, you're site won't be viewed the same in all browsers, let alone operating systems.
