first of all, i imagine that you are using the default text tool. don't
do that. double click on the T button and select DynamicText or
download and install the gimp-freetype plug-in. in fact, skip dynamic
text for this sort of high res application and go right for freetype.
if freetype.gimp.org is still down, i think you can find a version at
the default text tool renders anti-aliased fonts by drawing them 3 times
bigger than requested and then rescaling them. freetype renders
beautiful fonts a different and must be better way.
