LG please do not need to artificially increase the saturation and sharpness

Sharpening is there to increase the contrast between light and dark edges...

Basically, where you have dark text on a light (but not pure white) background, over sharpening causes the dark text to have a noticeable white "glow", or "halo" around the edges of the individual letters.

If you look at dhkx's second picture at full size you can see that the background is off-white, then there's a pixel or two of bright white before the black pixels that make up the text. It's particularly obvious on text with straight edges:

Zoomed

As you can see, it only really happens left to right, the flat tops of the "W" are fine, and have no bright white pixels between the black text and the background.
