    In my experience this is quite common, but can easily be adjusted. Transform (Control+T)(Command+T) and just remove the numbers before the decimal. Fixed & Crispy! (edit: to be clear, this is in photoshop)

    You should disable this completely in your settings. This shouldn't be on if your doing UI design.

    (slightly unrelated to the decimal issue, but useful)

    After doing some research on the subject, I've found that the core problem is that photoshop does not understand "Subpixel-Rendering". Currently there is no setting to correct this, but there are a few workarounds.

    My shot helps adjust stray pixels, but doesnt address the subpixel problem.

    @Thomas Maier created a downloadable action that simulates subpixel rendering. It's great for comps and demos, but should not be delivered to a developer in this manner.

    Thanks for doing the leg work on solving the issue. Hopefully the subpixel issue is addressed in CS6, but I have a feeling it wont. Thanks for sharing the action!
