Hour 16. Formatting

SVG's handling of type stands in stark contrast to HTML's handling. Designers who have always complained (somewhat rightfully) about the lack of typographic control in HTML will benefit the most from SVG's detailed level of control.

In this hour, you will learn how to

  • Include text within an SVG document

  • Change the size, spacing, and justification of your text

  • Create groups of text and give them margins

  • Bind text to a path
