Post a URL to your original image, the image annotated with the tahoma.ttf font, and the image produced by Gimp. We will try to reproduce the problem and account for the differences in the font. ImageMagick and Gimp both use the Freetype rendering engine so it should produce identical results.

Look for the TTF format. Is the mode listed as r--? Does it also mention which version of Freetype was compiled with ImageMagick?

We tried your annotation with ImageMagick 6.2.6-8 and Freetype 2.1.7 and it worked properly.
