StrokeThickness also applies to the various stroke decorations if they are defined, such as StrokeStartLineCap, or the StrokeDashArray dash pattern.

Generally you should use integral numeric values for this property. Nonintegral values can cause subpixel rendering, and may alter the apparent color of the stroke.
