One point that hasn't been pointed out is that good hinting improves
appearance *at low resolutions*. Past 600 dpi for output, hinting
really doesn't figure in. Computer screens generally run at 72 or 96
dpi, rarely over 100-something. So hinting is important for text
that will be viewed onscreen. I suppose some people are still using
300 dpi printers to output text and hinting will help there, too.
But if your printer is 600 dpi or more, hinting doesn't much matter,
and for imagesetters, not at all.
