I tried the various suggestions and most of them made no difference. The 
one that helped was changing Sub-pixel order from RGB to None. I'm 
reasonably happy with the way text looks now, although it doesn't look 
as good as in Xubuntu.

I'm sure I tried all of the Sub-pixel order settings before posting so I 
don't know why I missed that.

The Sub-pixel order settings RGB (the default) and BGR resulted in 
thinner (unattractive) letters. None and the two other settings look 
about the same but I chose None.

Thank you to everyone that responded.
