Good morning, 

I'm writing an SVG document that will be a template to use for poll
questions. The file itself is going to be agnostic about the information it
contains and will be manipulated at runtime probably using JavaScript (I may
also be using XSL to generate a static image). 

Since I don't know the lenght of any of the text ahead of time, I need to be
able to flow text, which is clearly not something SVG does. All thing being
equal, I'd used a foreign Object and XHTML to accomplish that. Unfortunately
Adobe doesn't yet support foreign object so I need to programmatically break
up my lines. Does anyone have any good ideas on how to do such a thing?

Thanks and have a happy holiday!
