First, remember that the Gimp does images, not text. So your
fonts are being rendered as images, not as vector text. You
didn't say what form of Gimp output you are using: are you
saving the images as GIFs or jpegs? If GIFs, then you lose some
quality when you convert to indexed - you may lose some of the
Gimp's anti-aliasing along the edges. This is inherent in
converting to indexed formats in general.
Perhaps if you could be more specific about the problems your
wife is encountering, we could be more helpful.
