1)    I have the following piece of  code in my svg

    <path id="attract" style="fill:none" d="M 177,235 C 160,235 160,115 
    <text style="fill:white;font-size:25 
    <textPath xlink:href="#attract">

Now I would like to align the text 'ATTRACT' in the center of the curve. 
I'm not able to achieve this using text-anchor:middle. Please help

2)  I would like to zoom my svg image programmatically. I know it can 
done. But my zooming requires that the width alone be increased and the 
height remains          constant. How can I do it.

With regards
