Title: Method to enable the recognition and rendering of antialiased images

Abstract: The present invention is a method for antialiased rendering (AAR) of an image. First, tagging methods for identifying antialiased pixels were described, the methods being employed separately or in concert with one another. After identifying AAR pixels, a fill order is determined and applied using a fill order algorithm that preferably employs a pixel window that is a subset of the larger window employed for pixel identification.
