Summary

Using specific typefaces with your SVG documents gives you the ability to communicate additional information beyond the message of the text alone. SVG is one of the few technologies available to designers that allows them not only to specifically reference fonts by name (similar to XHTML), but to actually encode the entire typeface so that all viewers see the exact same typographic display (similar to Flash).

What's more, SVG offers a standardized method for encoding typefaces using its SVG Fonts scheme. By saving letterforms as unique vector-based glyphs, able to be referenced just like a system font, SVG Fonts allow typefaces to be displayed in any point size across all viewers.
