The font handling routines in Windows are more sophisticated than those in FreeType2 (which is what SDL_TTF uses)... so a malformed TTF or any number of other issues could be causing blitting issues in the TTF rendering library itself.

As a note, I don't see any 'pixelation' in your screenshot aside from the jpeg compression artifacts, so I'm unsure of what issue you're actually describing. Do you mean the distorted outlines? Because that's not pixelation, that's distortion, and that can be explained by my previous statement.

Try using a different font, perhaps a default Windows font, to see if you get different results. If you do, you know you have a font file that may have issues or may be causing issues with FT2.
