If you are using Apache Batik and want to dwell deeper, you can start
with GVT part especially TextNode, TextPainter, etc From there you can
get AttributedCharacterIterator, textRun, Mark, Text Selection, etc. But
always remember that GVT part of batik is not DOM standard, it is
internal implementation used by batik. And for the current batik change
in GVT doesn't update the SVG DOM. But change in SVG DOM update the GVT

Otherwise you can use SVG DOM standard like Text,TSpan,TRef and
manipulate that. 

Or provide Rich Text Capability in front of SVG DOM text stuff, like the
swing JEditorPane HTML editor. Just look at the JEditorPane HTML editor
text editing stuff, it handle the HTML Dom update.

Or anything else, anyone got any idea?
