+<p class='issue'>SVG Fonts and this chapter are to be removed. Any wording from
+this chapter that describes how WOFF support is mandated, or how CSS Fonts
+functionality like <code>@font-face</code> can be used to reference Web fonts is
+to be moved, probably into the Text chapter.  An informative reference to the
+SVG-in-OpenType work will probably be added too.</p>
