AliasedText is rendered with bilevel anti-aliasing.
AutoText is rendered with the most appropriate rendering algorithm based on the layout mode that was used to format the text.
ClearTypeText is rendered with the most appropriate ClearType rendering algorithm based on the layout mode that was used to format the text.
GrayscaleText is rendered with grayscale anti-aliasing.

The Grayscale anti-aliasing algorithm chooses the appropriate ClearType algorithm to get bitmap representations for the glyphs. The intensity of the red, green, and blue channels of a pixel of rendered text is the value of the green channel in the corresponding pixel of the bitmap representation of the glyph.
