I am not sure if this is the case here, but often the fonts themselves
actually set a minimum size for anti-aliasing. The font designer
decides at what point the anti-aliasing would degrade the usability of
the glyphs and turns it off. I know this is the case with many Asian
Have you tried with other fonts? Maybe you need to find a small
character font designed for point sizes 10 and below.
