I've been trying to build up a X-Y plot in SVG using XSLT and I have had
frustration in being able to center align text, right align text and to
rotate text 90 degrees.  I don't know if I'm misinterpreting the spec
or if the Adobe plug-in hasn't implemented these yet.

<!-- an attempt to position a label below and centered on 90,366  -->
<text x="90" y="366 " style="text-anchor:middle; glyph-anchor:topline;">300</text>

<!-- an attempt to position a label even and to the right of 64,355  -->
<text y="355" x="64" style="text-anchor:end; glyph-anchor:centerline;">0.000</text>

<!-- an attempt to label the y-axis with vertically oriented text  -->
<text x="60" y="200" style="text-anchor:middle; glyph-orientation-horizontal:90;">Liquid Viscosity</text>

All of these displayed as if they ignored the style attributes.  So, am I reading the
spec wrong or has the Adobe plug-in not implemented these yet.

Some samples in either the SVG spec or the Adobe samples page would be useful.
These seem to be a lot more common than text on a roller-coaster.
