SVG text with positioned glyphs, anchoring and bidirectionality is
greatly non-interoperable and somewhat underspecified.  We have
discussed some aspects of this in a couple of threads on the WG mailing
list over the last week or so:

  http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-svg-wg/2011AprJun/0082.html

I want to make a proposal for defining text layout behaviour in these
cases.  Comments and suggestions (particularly any suggested
simplifications) are welcome.

(Apologies for the general illegibility of the WG wiki; I figured it’s
better for refining the proposal to have it up there than in a plain
text email.)
