Well, I don't know what XRender provides, but base X font handling
*can't* do antialiased fonts.

I have.  Not charcell fonts, which may be what you're thinking of, but
monospaced fonts which aren't charcell, yes.  (The difference between
monospaced and charcell is that a charcell font has all pixels of each
character inside the box implied by the ascent, descent, and width; a
monospaced font has the same width for each character but may have
pixels outside that box for some - or even all - characters.)
