Hi Cam,

	In today's minutes I see this:

	Text (glyphs) that go beyond the path aren't rendered. See:

http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/text.html#TextpathLayoutRules

in the first bulleted list in that section, the 9th bullet says:
"Glyphs whose midpoint-on-the-path are off either end of the path are not rendered."

Cheers,
Alex
