Subject New SVG Fonts in the contrib area
Date Fri, 06 Jun 2003 11:27:34 GMT
Hello,

Bert Bos has kindly contributed fonts which are now availalble in the 
CVS repository under the contrib/fonts/gladiator/ directory (look into 
the svg subdirectory) [1].

Bert has contributed the Gladiator fonts he created which include serif 
and sanserif fonts as well as small caps versions. Bert is planning on 
contributing the True Type versions of these fonts as well but we are 
sorting out a couple issues with the current versions.

The advantage of using SVG fonts is that you can embed them in your SVG 
document which guarantees a consistent rendering accross viewers. You 
can either embed fonts directly into your SVG content or you can 
reference an external font from a <font-face> element [2].

Enjoy & thanks Bert!
Regards,
Vincent.

      There are multiple examples in the Batik samples. For example, see 
the
       files in the samples/tests/spec/fonts directory.
