i'm using OpenLayers (v2.13.1) and would like to use Stamen Toner tiles as background.

The example is simple to understand : http://maps.stamen.com/test/openlayers.html

But i'd like to use the "lite" variant of the toner tiles, how is it possible with OpenLayer ?

Please check out the following code

    <title>tile.stamen.com: OpenLayers</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.openlayers.org/api/OpenLayers.js"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.stamen.com/js/tile.stamen.js?v1.1.2"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        var map, layer;
        function initialize() {
            map = new OpenLayers.Map('map', {controls: [new OpenLayers.Control.LayerSwitcher({})]});
            stamenLayer = new OpenLayers.Layer.Stamen("toner-lite");

            map.setCenter(new OpenLayers.LonLat(-13630355, 4546576), 10);

    <style type="text/css">
        #map {
            width: 800px;
            height: 600px;
<body onload="initialize()">
    <div id="map"></div>
