Curt,
The Adobe SVG plugin release 4 (the one that is available today) does not
yet support 'text-anchor'. Also, 'glyph-anchor' has been renamed in the
latest spec to 'baseline-identifier' (with a couple of minor changes along
the way), and this property also is not supported in the current plugin.
The next release of the plugin will include many text enhancements
(hopefully 'text-anchor'), but the various baseline management features are
likely to be implemented later rather than sooner.
