    Hello Louis,

    LM> [LM] I have a corollary question. It seems that when I change font
    LM> the thickness of the strikehrough sometimes changes (for, I

    LM> glyph in the font ?

    It is a special parameter of the font - UnderlineThickness. If you
    take a peek in your AFM file you will easily find it. The same line
    thickness used for overline and line-through also.
    If you want to underline your text using the line of the same width
    regardless of the font you can just wrap this text in the fo:inline
    with border-bottom specified or with image of the line as a background
    (SVG is the best choice in this case).

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov
