Fonts on Fedora Core 19

I recently upgraded my personal workstation from Ubuntu 12.04 to Fedora Core 19.  I'm very happy with the change, I prefer the standard Gnome 3 to Canonical's Unity desktop.  Probably something to do with my workstation not being a tablet.  However, one of the annoyances with Fedora Core has always been its font rendering.  It was never as nice a default Ubuntu install.  However after a couple of days of digging I've managed to figure out the magic incantation required to get all of my fonts looking good, including in Google Chrome.
