Support for SVG fonts (rendering, embedding,...)
Currently, if you want to add text to an SVG drawing
with Inkscape, and be sure that it is rendered exactly
same in every platform, you need to convert it to a
path. This works, but of course you lose the actual
textual content, which for example search engines might
be able to read and index in some distant future.
Luckily, SVG specification gives the ability to specify
the font glyphs in the SVG file itself as SVG graphics.
I request that Inkscape be given an ability to generate
and embed these SVG fonts - that is, I could just
select text and select "embed SVG fonts for selected
text" or "embed SVG fonts for all text in document".
This shouldn't be too hard to implement, since it is
essentially the same that Inkscape already does when
converting text to path (I think - I haven't actually
read the code, it is beyond my abilities :( ).
