Hi Randall,

  If you want to make SVG fonts ......take a look at the documentation at:

I think you will find that instruction informative :-)

If you would like to learn more about SVG Fonts....you should check out the 
The SVG Rec at:

SVG Fonts are really cool! ...text will look the same for all ...and the

biggest deal is.......YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN SVG FONT!! :-)

if you have any trouble converting the ttf fonts to SVG please ask for 

We all learn by sharing what we know
