Closing ACTION-2741 Make an svg font with latin and hebrew glyphs

Hello public-svg-wg,

Make an svg font with latin and hebrew glyphs

I made the font, in both SVG and WOFF. Its derived form SIL Ezra,
which is under the SIL Open Font License, version 1.1
(, with Reserved Font Names "SIL" and
"Ezra". Derived versions can be made as long as the reserved names are
not used for the derived font.

The minutes
aren't clear which test needs this.

In the svg directory, grep -i hebrew *.svg indicates that its
text-intro-02-b.svg which needs this, so I was going to add it to that
test. However, I read there

This test requires installation of a system font that supports the
various international characters used in this test case. A suitable
font should be used by the SVG renderer if none of the specified font
families are available (or if they are available but do not have the
required glyphs). To minimize system dependencies, a future version of
this test might include all necessary glyphs as an SVG font.

So I duplicated this test to the next free number,
text-intro-08-b.svg, added references to the SVG and WOFF fonts, then
updated text-intro-02-b.svg to remove the 'a future test' part.

text-tselect-02-f also has some hebrew characters so I likewise
duplicated that as text-tselect-03-f with the same links to SVG and
WOFF fonts.

Although this is a small change from the already approved
tests, I would appreciate someone casting an eye over
text-intro-09-b.svg and text-tselect-03-f.svg just to be sure.
