Forwarding a message from Tobi Reif wrt outlining text. I think we can handle
both options in the future, using a stroke property for per-glyph outlines
and text-shadow spreads for the per-word outlines. But wanted to make sure
this got filed so we can make sure we handle it properly when we get to it.

Hi

Regarding
http://www.w3.org/TR/2010/WD-css3-text-20101005/#text-outline
:

There should be a way to specify outlines on characters/glyphs, but also
on words / groups of characters. The "character outline" would stay
visible if a character overlaps the other, the "word outline" would be
painted just around the union of two or several overlapping characters.

(I don't know whether an additional property would be required for this
or if it could be added to text-outline.)

It should then be possible to apply multiple character outlines and
multiple word outlines, all to the same word.

Here's an example PNG:

I hope to be able to use these two kinds of outlines in HTML pages
(SVG fonts, WOFF fonts, etc), and also inside SVG graphics.

Tobi
