about this item

Although SVG is mostly known as a graphics format, one of its key benefits is that it encodes decorative text in a way that is editable, accessible, and search engine-discoverable. The SVG specifications give designers extensive control over the positioning and appearance of text—but at the cost of many of the automatic text layout settings used for paragraphs on a web page.

SVG Text Layout takes an in-depth look at the many ways designers can manipulate text within SVG, from adding simple text labels to letter-by-letter positioning of artistic text. You’ll learn how both artistic fonts and SVG painting effects can be used to decorate text, and discusses various approaches for increasing consistency between different web browsers and other software.
