LCD font smoothing in Text has no effect

Looks like I am getting Direct3D...

Prism pipeline init order: d3d j2d 
Using t2k for text rasterization
Using dirty region optimizations
Prism pipeline name = com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
Loading D3D native library ...
Direct3D initialization succeeded
(X) Got class = class com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
Initialized prism pipeline: com.sun.prism.d3d.D3DPipeline
OS Information:
	Windows 7 build 7601
D3D Driver Information:
	NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800
	Driver nvd3dumx.dll, version
	Pixel Shader version 3.0
	Device : ven_10DE, dev_05FD, subsys_059310DE

...but I still get greyscale antialiasing.

-Dprism.verbose=true to see which renderer is used.

Are you getting 2D or D3D/OGL ?

2D isn't set up to do it and we probably won't fix that because it won't
matter once we stop using it in 3.0
