May 9 '20 at 21:13 comment added besmirched Re, "...one can say that every stroke has its own intensity..." ISTR, one of the challenges of building a vector graphics display was to get all the strokes (short and long) to appear with approximately the same intensity. You either had to take more time to draw the long ones (tricky!) or you had to turn down the beam intensity for drawing the short ones.
