Try to adjust the blacker parameter for the SVG image
Closed, DeclinedPublic


On my screen, the stroke width of the SVG formulas is darker than the PNG formulas.

Perhaps we could try to adjust the blacker parameter for the SVG images:

blacker: 10

This is the stroke width to use for all character paths (1em = 1000 units). This is a cheap way of getting slightly lighter or darker characters, but remember that not all displays will act the same, so a value that is good for you may not be good for everyone.

I don't know how we could get a good value here.
I think the current (default) value is ok.

As I read the doc, this is really device dependent. On my devices, the SVG formulas look too thick but for other people it might be good enough. Let's keep the default for now.
