Description

Anti-aliasing for scalable fonts can be set by using
   TFontStyle::SetBitmapType(EAntiAliasedGlyphBitmap);
or
   TOpenFontSpec::SetBitmapType(EAntiAliasedGlyphBitmap);
Anti-aliased fonts can be used when drawing text to a graphics context, as well as in labels. However, the setting is ignored when applied to a rich text editor (CEikRichTextEditor).

Solution

Create a CCharFormatLayer object and to set that as the global character format using SetGlobalCharFormat(). This will enable anti-aliasing globally for the editor.
    iMyCharFormatLayer = CCharFormatLayer::NewL();    // iMyCharFormatLayer is a class member
    RichText()->SetGlobalCharFormat(iMyCharFormatLayer);
Also remember to delete the CCharFormatLayer object in the destructor.
