AntiAliasedFaces

XEmacs

As of version 21.5b24 XEmacs has support for Xft fonts included (but it must be selected at build time). The release notes at http://xemacs.org/Releases/21.5.24.html have all the details. Additional configuration suggestions available from CFruhwirth’s Weblog.

GNU Emacs

Support for this is in GNU Emacs version 23.1. See XftGnuEmacs. Most X systems will have sub-pixel antialiasing configured by default, but see this HOWTO if you have trouble.

AquamacsEmacs (on Mac OS X) comes configured to use a range of scalable fonts with antialiasing, which are usable out-of-the box.
