# Make Latex background transparent?

1. Dec 4, 2008

Hi guys. I have a small problem with viewing Latex symbols here. Formerly the white background of the Latex symbols enabled here would be transparent which makes the Latex display slightly better. However, due to a period of inactivity lasting slightly over 2 weeks it seems to me that either something on the forum changed or some changes were made to my web browser such that the white background appears along with the latex symbols. Is there any way to make it transparent again?

Thanks Kurdt. I wasn't aware there was a bug.

I don't believe it is a bug, it's extra work chroot needed to do after the server move. I believe a lot of the LaTex here is custom work that chroot did.

Okay guys, it should be fixed. Sorry it took me so long to solve it.

Um, is it just me or does the new Latex font look thinner than before?

Yeah the font looks a little different.

I had to change a BUNCH of things to fix this "upgrade," so I wouldn't be surprised if the font or rendering has changed in some other way. If you think it looks bad, or is harder to read, or have any other concern, let me know.

Yeah, I can see that. I'll futz around with the LaTeX font packages and see what I can do.

This font isn't easy to read, but the previous one wasn't either. Hm, Let's see what this looks like if I post it again:
Yes, this is definitely worse than before.

The previous one was bolder and easier to read.

I think it's due to the new tool chain's handling of anti-aliasing. I'll see what I can do.
