Hm. Not really a wrong font.

The SVG appears to use a font called "Sans" (which is not the same as "sans-serif") that is not installed in my machine:

         style="font-size:48px;font-style:normal;font-weight:normal;line-height:125%;letter-spacing:0px;word-spacing:0px;fill:#8b8b8b;fill-opacity:1;stroke:none;font-family:Sans"

So I never noticed that the designer did intend something else.

So it is more a bug that the text is not a vector graphics itself....

Yes, looks better. Thanks! I will update everything.
