I thought the same thing but I don't think the font supports bold. I could try adding a border to the letters to make them wider.

PS7 has a faux bold and faux italic setting in the character window and I enabled both of those. Maybe you could do a 1px stroke around the letters? But that might be too much . . .

@golinux, does this look too bold?

Better but it could even be a smidge bolder! Also the logo and "R" could be a few px closer to each other. Compare it to the one currently on the website and it's obvious. And a R/L margin would be nice. Very hard to judge proportions when it's jammed up on both sides . . .

I've been busy all day. Will be a little more present after a bath and food . . .

Made it a bit bolder and put them closer together. I don't create any margins with the svg because usually it's meant to be imported into another image that will have its own margins.

Sorry to be slow in responding. Got caught up in the reappearance of meandean etc. and recovering from yesterday . . .

Yes, that looks quite good. Thanks for doing it. :)
