Description daniel.rentz 2010-07-29 13:01:09 UTC
A few symbols from the OpenSymbol font are inconsistent:

- The > and < signs are thicker than the >= and <= signs
- The + (plus) sign is thicker than the - (minus) sign
- The = (equal) sign is thicker than the <> (not equal) sign
- The "toward" arrow way too thick
- The "forall" sign is higher and wider than the "exists" sign

tl->ih: I put all the changes DR, HDU and me thought to be import in the new
attached document. That one includes the changes listed by DR above as well.
Please review them and say what you think about it. Are they ok can they be done
with the time available to you?

Also we like to say that the new Greek symbols with serifs look much better than
the old ones before. Many thanks! 
Even though it took us a bit of time to get used to the new look. ;-) But now we
are, and thanks to that the list of symbols to be discussed I originally had in
mind has shrunk considerably.
