Request for clarification of <glyph d="...

When looking through the spec for the d (path) attribute of the <glyph>
tag, I could not find anything that said how it was painted.

Presumably it is filled, presumably with an inherited colour.

In PostScript, in the Font dictionary there are two entries PaintType
(which says whether glyphs should be stroked or filled) and StrokeWidth
(which says how to stroke them). Is there anything equivalent for SVG
fonts?

I'm aware that if I want to stroke something I can place child elements
inside the glyph, but that makes it less obvious that the font has a
consistent behavior.

(I'm currently working on stroked fonts in fontforge, and just wondered
if I were missing something).

Thanks,
George Williams
