    Can you get a sub-pixel effect in a browser by drawing the SVG into some sort of graphics object which is then rendered at less than full size?

    I don’t think so, but I haven’t investigated much. Obviously I can do arbitrary things by rendering the SVG on a server, but you didn’t mean that, and it would suck.

    This is basically FSAA, right?

    Adobe Flash Player does this. It works really accurately if you don’t use opacity for pixel coverage (i.e. just have it “on” or “off”.)

    @Alex: As far as I now understand the term FSAA, yes.
