Use the Behind Fill option to apply an outline to a stylized font such as a script font. Normally, outlines are applied after the fill is applied. Half of the outline lies inside the object, while the other half lies outside the object. When you enable the Behind Fill check box, the outline is drawn first, then the fill is placed on top of the outline. Consequently, half of the outline is covered by the fill.
