Thanks for point this out!

With the following, I was able to solve my problem and make my fonts
look really good.

  <match target="pattern">
    <test name="slant"> <const>roman</const> </test>
    <test qual="all" name="size"
    <edit name="antialias"><bool>false</bool></edit>
  <match target="pattern">
    <test qual="any" name="family"> <string>monospace</string> </test>
    <edit name="antialias"><bool>true</bool></edit>

Basically, I don't antialias fonts below 13.5 points---and I use
mscorefonts for my desktop and applications in GNOME.

Monospace font (IMHO) does not look good without AA, so I AA it at all

I AA italic and oblique fonts (even though microsoft thinks don't need
AA).  Thats why I check for the slant as well.
