SVG output differs between Browser and Prince

All SVG's are rendering bold and bigger in Prince output

When you open the attached HTML in the browser the output looks okay, but the Prince output looks bolder and bigger. Let me know why SVG breaks in the Prince output pls?

BTW, the SVG is converted using MathJax from MathML (i.e. MathML to SVG)

It appears to be rendering each glyph as an SVG path element, not using text fonts! That seems unnecessary, is there an option to tell it to use real text?
Set the MathJax SVG output 'blacker' option to 0.
Thank you @Mike and @Wangp.

The Blacker:0 worked well, now the Math looks good - sample attached

That looks great! Are you running MathJax in Node or a headless browser to generate the SVG first?
Headless browser phantomjs. I've a simple bat file like:
@echo off
set PHANTOMJS=".\libs\phantomjs\bin\phantomjs.exe"
set PRINCE="C:\Prince\engine\bin\prince.exe"
set bookID=%~1
set bookConv=%~2

REM apply mathjax and produce new html for prince
%PHANTOMJS% ..\..\js\render-math.js %bookID% %bookConv%

REM use the html created on previous step
%PRINCE% --log=logs\%bookConv%.log --verbose --debug --javascript --baseurl=${ROOT} %bookConv%.html -o %bookConv%.pdf

Neat! I hope we can support MathJax natively within Prince one day. :D
Yes, would be good if you guys support MathJax, since on this method the speed of Prince drops when dealing with MathJax applied HTML's.
@shivaram Any chance of sharing render-math.js with us? Thanks!
