Summary

Text in SVG is somewhat different from the HTML medium that so many developers are accustomed to. However, if you are familiar with CSS and design programs, the level of typographic control will seem both familiar and welcome. The ability to set the size, spacing, justification, and indentation, as well as bind text to a path, not only keeps SVG on par with other technologies (such as HTML and CSS), but elevates it above the capabilities of other technologies.

In the next Hour, you'll learn to use specific typefaces with your SVG documents to communicate additional information beyond the message of the text alone.
