Interesting problem. 

The use of two Garamond fonts from different found arises will no necessarily 
produce discernibly different characters. A totally different don't family 
should be used instead of two Garamond fonts.

I have noticed that on Windows, font representation accuracy diminishes when 
viewing at less than 100%. I've noted that characters lose definition unless 
viewed at 120% magnification. 

That seems to be part and parcel of the Windows font management code under high 
resolution screen viewing.
