Hi,

the test suite uses SVGFreeSansASCII. This could make the comparision
between SVG Viewer output ant the expected drawing output easier.
However, the SVGFreeSansASCII-version on the test suite uses kerning
(<hkern>) and I see some differences on WebKit with some SVG-Tests
compared to Opera.

http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/test/harness/htmlObject/text-text-09-t.html

I realised, that the output of Opera doesn't change after deleting the
kerning from SVGFreeSansASCII. But the output of WebKit matches the one
of Opera after doing so.

Should kerning be ignored on glyph transformations, like in the examples
above?
Does Opera support kerning?

Greetings,
Dirk
