Chapter 8. Laying Out Text in SVG > Comparison of Text Layout in SVG and HTML

Comparison of Text Layout in SVG and HTML

To developers who have used HTML, the absence of automatic text flow among the techniques of text layout available in SVG 1.0 may come as something of a shock. This does mean that laying out significant amounts of text requires much more thought and effort than simply using an XHTML p element.

NOTE

Word wrapping has been named in the Requirements for SVG 1.2. See http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2Reqs/. Working drafts for SVG 1.2 are likely to be located at http://www.w3.org/tr/svg12.
