No, my output is fine (convert  It's possible that your
imagemagick is not compiled with rsvg support.  You can check this

  $ convert identify -list format | grep SVG

But we can't rely on that.  As great as imagemagick is, its native
SVG->PNG conversion capabilities are horrible.  Even when it uses the
rsvg backend, the PNG output is not optimal, and I had to add all of
those command line switches to improve the output.

I really wish we could convert the SVG text to paths, but apparently
there are plans to *translate* the examples, so we would need the text
data from the SVG files.
