Hi,

	I would just like to clarify that when using letter-spacing not equal
to zero, that there should not be space added/subtracted after the last
character in a line. This may affect the positioning of text when
text-anchor is set to middle. I note this as Batik 1.7 adds space after
the last letter and thus centering text does not work as expected.
(Opera/Firefox do not support letter-spacing. Chrome/Inkscape do not add
space after the last letter.)

	I have created a test SVG:
