I've attached 2 PNGs, one at 100% zoom and one at 300%. The graphics
quality for the musical elements is excellent but the text comes out
pixellated. Using Firefox 3.0.11 on Windows XP. I guess the text output
depends on the installed fonts that Firefox sees on my system, but I
wonder if that's a good idea. I'm thinking that svg output can be used
for web apps (like wikipedia for instance), and I wouldn't want musical
examples to suffer from such user dependencies.

Though my understanding of the issues involved is rather limited, so I
might just be missing the point.
