The referenced tutorial was followed to complection using Inkscape 0.47pre4 r22446, built Oct 15 2009 on Ubuntu 9.10

A number of extensions are utilized:
- Inside/Outside Halo extension (now Inset/Outset Halo)
- Add Nodes (to a path created from text)
- Pattern Along path

No errors were observed.

The bug in the file 'simpletransform.py' was fixed in SVN Revision 18997. Inkscape 0.47 includes the fixed version.
