I think this had to do with the usage of Batik vs. Csiro packages.  Batik
has a transparent background, which some browsers do not handle well
(like Netscape 4.x).  One way around the transparent background issue is
to explicitly put a filled rectangle with the proper background color behind
the rest of your image.

I don't know how to get Batik to control the antialiasing of fonts.  That
might be a question for the Batik team to answer.
