The two rows at the bottom are not that sharp
Please have a look at he attached screenshot...
It is the Elements window in Math.
The 2 rows at the bottom do not seem very sharp...
Windows 7 x64 LibO 3,5rc2
[Reproducible] with Server installation of Master "LibO-dev 3.5.0 – WIN7 Home Premium (64bit) ENGLISH UI [(Build ID: d38713d-5d03837-ca7e6f5-c4bb9bd-ce71330)]" (Voreppe_Win32_Tinderbox 2011-11-15)
Some relation elements (precedes, suceedes, ...) are shown with different font, but I can't tell whether that's intended of not (shown the same way in Help), I will do further research, soon.
These are bitmaps not text. These operators are new, so new icons were made. The creator of the icons could not (or did not try) to reproduce the font settings of the original icons. Possible solution: redraw these icons in a uniform manner.
See files in icon-themes\galaxy\starmath\res\.
Olivier Hallot added these Game theory items for 3.5, long after the creation of the original icons. The font is the same, but the hinting is very different.
From my perspective, it would be highly welcome if someone could replace all of these icons with icons that use a more professional-looking font than Comic Sans (my ideas in that area are FreeSans/Helvetica, Vegur/Myriad Pro or Computer Modern [Bold]).
Yes.. I am the one to blame! :-)
Please find in bug 42892 the SVG sources for the new icons. I worked with Inkscape, the letters are from MS Comic Sans, and the math symbols from STIX fonts (http://www.stixfonts.org/ )
If necessary, this work can be flagged as an EasyHack.
Oh sorry, excuse my expressing it that way. I do not want to put the blame on you. I believe you honestly did the best you could short of ripping everything out and redoing 200+ icons.

No problem at all... I was ironic on my "fault", and emoticons are not rendered in BZ (giggles).
I agree that a prettier icon work are due for the whole Elements window (actually, the whole Math module should be rethinked).
I think letters in a formula should normally be in italics, and a serif
font. I thin LaTeX does it that way by default, and about every professional
looking maths book does it that way. Even my electronic calculator from Texas Instruments, does this, most clearly seen in "x" and "y" ;)
I think Times Italic, Liberation Italic, Computer Modern Italic or about any serif text font with a true italic (i.e. not slanted, but genuine italic letter forms) would be fine.
Do we need to keep the images there or could we just use normal text on the buttons?
It's not worth to fix this one, because with some fixes on the Elements Dock the old Elements menu will be removed (see #68871).
Marking this as WONTFIX.
