Hi Leah, thank you!

I viewed and printed the PDF with pdf.js in Thunderbird, Apple Preview 
and Adobe Acrobat Pro 9 to my Kyocera FS-C5100DN color laserprinter via 
KPDL (PS-compatible) driver.
I don’t see any font problems, but neither text nor the bar are 100% 
black – is this intentional? Doesn’t look like RGB black, there are no 
other colors involved except in the printout from pdf.js.

pdf.js seems to print as image and blurs the outlines. (I never tried to 
print from pdf.js before, is this normal?)
