how am i supposed to draw text with the baseline above it.

i tried
<text x="100" y="50" font-size="12" text-anchor="middle"
alignment-baseline="top" >blah</text>

but Squiggle does not allow "top" value and adobe svg viewer ignores it
completely. i tried reading svg specs but it is to complicated and
confusing, i didn't understand a thing about baselines.

i also tried other values, but text is allways drawn ABOVE baseline. is
there any way i can draw text UNDER the baseline
