In the image above, the black shape was exported from IcoMoon, and the blue shape is the original SVG.
As you can see the quality of the export is pretty shocking, with jagged edges on pretty much all curved surfaces.

It's worth pointing out that the one <circle> object in the SVG exported correctly, and this only appears to be an issue with paths. (Possibly complexity limits?)
I have sent the problem SVG to Keith.

I just looked at your SVG. Your curves have too many redundant points. To increase the precision in IcoMoon, use the preferences panel and change the em size (Em Square Height) value. Change it to something like 4000 or 8000. But the fact that your SVG has a lot of redundant points means that your fonts would be unnecessarily too large.

I've gone back and simplified the SVG greatly. It now looks fine using the default size.

Thanks for your help!
