Stack Overflow Meta is discussing an issue about the favorite star.
As we can see in high zoom rates, there is an unfilled area. Looking even closer, you can find more issues, e.g. that the whole outline is not symmetrical.
To me, I'd never have designed the star like this anyway. Instead I'd
- take a copy of the star,
- resize it,
- put the larger one in the background
Is there any reason my approach would result in "bad" SVG? Is there a SVG rule unknown to me that objects should not overlap?
My approach would at least require less points, thus be potentially smaller in size and easier to calculate for a computer (faster), doesn't it?
