It is a system thing: for some reason the system decides to not use the 
bold variant of the bitstream font, but to "bolden" up the regular font, 
making it look pretty ugly.

Some of us have toyed with it, we've never actually come up with a 
proper solution.

This is completely bogus. And even more so if you're sending an email to 
a list. You really should remove this waste of bytes from your signature.
