> Stroke on Stroke isn't smooth - HELP<

Hi,

I have some text that I am stroking once in white (2px) and then reselecting the whole image and stroking it again in black (1px) the problem is that when I stroke the image the final time in black the 1 px line is rough and grainy. Is there anyone who could suggest a way to create such a thin stroke (2px is to thick - 1.5 would be ideal but I can't do that) but still maintains the smoothness of the font below.

Thanks for all your help

Charlie

An easy solution would be to create the text twice. One for the white stroke of 2 px a second one for the black stroke, only this time stroke the black 3px and lay the white stroke text over the black stroke text. Problem solved?
