    I dare say you had Candara in mind. By 'how can i achieve that font' I suppose you meant to ask if it were available to download for free. Could you please make things a little bit clearer?

    Simply you can't. Both seem to be using the same font-type: Verdana.

    In the old one, however, the font is rendered by the image software with anti-alias on, in the new one the font is rendered by the browser. Even different browsers might display it differently (try Safari for Windows for example).

    In the old one, I have difficulties to read anything because the font-size is too small, and there's no chance I can change this.

    There are many more disadvantages when it comes to the old one, like it's bad for accessibility and search engines aren't able to read the text in the image.

    Side note the flash navigation is god awful.

    First, every change of the page it does a stupid animation which keeps me from jumping to page to page quickly.

    It is not accessible. If I don't have flash there is no way to move around.

    You are using Javascript to detect if there is flash or load it whatever then in turn in noscript tags you embed it, no that is backwards. Instead you should replace elements on the page if the users browser has flash.
    Logic without the fatal effects.

    I was wondering, would it be possible to create the image exactly like your boss wants using your graphics program so it will appear exactly like he wants it to visually and then underneath those images put the text/content so that the search engines will pick it up? Just a thought, why or why wouldn't this work?

    Well, you can add an alt text to your image but whether you really should include all that text in the alt text, which is there for a short description of an image, I don't know. You also have the longdesc where you refer to another document (text) when you need a longer description of the image, but I've got now experience on whether search engines pick this up.

    Also, you don't have the possibility to add extra significance to certain text parts, like using h1 and strong provides.

    You boss just needs to understand that web design is not the same as designing for print.
