Opera uses an older method of anti-aliasing which involves use of an
XftConfig file. Though the document at the URL below describes a NetBSD
setup, it will work on FreeBSD, and Linux-Opera will be able to display
anti-aliased fonts if they are selected in fonts preferences. I find the
Bitstream Vera fonts give a very nice appearance.
