Font for UML diagrams..

I use StarUML for part 3. When i save the diagrams as JPG and open in browser, the class names, method names, stereotypes etc doesn't appear normal and the edges are bit thick and hard to read. I tried changing the default font of Tahoma to Times New Roman, still no use. Does anyone have any idea about what font to use to make the reading of text easy in the diagrams? I am afraid, if there is difficulty in reading the text, marks may be deducted.

A JPEG export with font:Tahoma size:8 worked perfectly fine for me. No distortions.

I agree. Here's the link:
