The logo for the web site, both meta and regular, has the N characters' vertical lines somehow bolder than everything else.

Here's how it renders on my browser:

fat N's

The lines are two pixel columns wide, both columns fully saturated. No other letters are affected AFAICT.

The strange thing is, I'm looking at sprites.png in an image editor, and I cannot locate the same boldness. One column of pixels is with full opacity and the other one isn't.

It's like my browser can't handle PNG transparency for that single letter. (Welcome to 1999?)

Anyone else seeing the same?

I'm on Seamonkey 2.39, FreeBSD 9.3 amd64. (No reproduce on SM 2.40/Win2k3 on the same computer.)

Reproduced on a different computer; on both Opera 12.18 and MSIE11, Windows 8.1.

    I'm not seeing the same thing. Which browser are you using? – Blavius Jun 8 '16 at 15:36

    Note that there are two background images specified for the sprites in the CSS: PNG and SVG. The SVG comes later so it overrides the PNG as long as your browser supports it. I'm not surprised there is some odd rendering bug with the SVG... – Darius Jahandarie Jun 8 '16 at 20:14
  • I will take a look at this. Thanks for reporting. – Paweł Jun 9 '16 at 7:40
  • I think I found where the problem is. Fix has been pushed to repo and waiting for build. It shouldn't take longer than 24h. I will keep an eye on that. – Paweł Jun 9 '16 at 9:00

    Not sure if this is a fix, but at the moment it looks like this: i.stack.imgur.com/sa0dx.png – Earthliŋ Jun 9 '16 at 15:19
  • If there are problems with the font, we could always change it. – Earthliŋ Jun 9 '16 at 15:22
  • Yeah, same kind of N for me too. Looks cool though, sort of. – oals Jun 9 '16 at 15:24

Having quite the opposite - missing lines in N letters:

  • Also, if I open sprites.svg, I see the same even when I zoom in. – scriptin Jun 9 '16 at 18:10

    You're looking at Paweł's fixed version. The fix was defective, of course. – oals Jun 9 '16 at 18:13
  • Oh, I see. Should have read the comments =) – scriptin Jun 9 '16 at 18:58
