My fonts have all gone funny - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Just opened a previously saved doent and all that text has gone blurred. When I zoom in it's like the text has become raster rather than vector. Typing new text in the doent also produces the same results - although in a new doent it seems fine. Have I clicked something by mistake and converted the text somehow? And can I get it back? Help appreciated...

    Daran:

    Sounds like you may be in "pixel preview" mode, in which case going to View>Pixel Preview, unchecking that will get you back to normal...(sorry, I know, bad grammar),

    or

    you may have a blur effect applied, for which you can check the Appearance palette, and if there's a blur listed when your text is selected, that's your problem. Delete the blur from the Appearance palette, and you're OK. Reading up on the functioning of the Appearance palette will help understand this better, plus I don't feel like typing a whole page on how to set it up.
