Hi,

I'm currently strugglying with font issues in SVG, I'm rendering unknown
content that may come from anywhere in the world and be in any glyph
(peoples names etc.) I've got my backend stuff all apparently working with
i18n, but I'm now struggling with the SVG font issues.    I can't embed all
the characters I might find, as that'd soon get too large, however if I
could identify that particular glyphs have failed to render, then I could
switch to a version with those embedded (or dynamically embed them with
getURL etc.)  To achieve this, I'd like an onGlyphFailedEvent which will
fire when any character fails to render within a text/tspan etc. (or perhaps
for each individual glyph, I'm not sure which would be better.)

Jim.
