This may be a bit off-topic but it looked like the list that came closest
to the issue.
I have a question about the Computer Modern fonts. When I print documents
written in CM fonts with a 600dpi printer, the output on paper appears a
bit too light (though on the computer screen it looks great). I've heard
that for the output to look better on paper, the resolution needs to be at
least 1200dpi. I just read that in 1992 Donald Knuth had made some changes
so that the letterforms look good at low resolutions. I'm using Miktex on a
cygwin platform so I'm guessing that this is already part of Miktex. So my
question - is there any way to make the CM fonts look better (i.e. slightly
thicker/darker) on paper? I think these fonts look awesome and so I'd like
to stick to them as much as possible.
