Given that whether 'fi' is a single glyph or two glyphs depends on the
fonts available, and given that the mapping of the <text> element's
coordinates to letters depends on the number of glyphs, does this mean
that assigning coordinates to letters in a word like
   final
depends on what fonts are available?

If so, that seems like a problem.
