Searching for text in an SVG image?

(My apologies if you see two copies of this. I didn't see the first show
up in the archives, and the subscription confirmation email was
meanwhile stuck in a spam candidates folder.) 
I know that when I see "hello" in an SVG file, it may have been put
there with a single text element, but it may have been put there with 5
text elements, each placing a single letter in the image. The latter
would obviously be more difficult to search for. Has anyone heard of a
SVG programming library that makes such searches easier?
