RE: Turning Off Antialiasing


I can't speak for Adobe, but we [Jasc] haven't implemented support for
'shape-rendering' at this time. That doesn't mean we're "blithely ignoring"
it or not paying attention to the spec, just that we haven't implemented it

Subject: Turning Off Antialiasing

I want fonts rendered with no antialiasing.  I still know very little about 
SVG, but I gather that the way this is supposed to be done is by 
incorporating shape-rendering:crispEdges into a style element.  I'm not 
getting this to work.  Here is some SVG that I have tried:

<?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 20001102//EN"
<svg width="500" height="500">
	<text x="186" y="173" style="font-family:Arial;font-size:14;stroke-
this is a scratch default</text>

When I view this using the Adobe SVG plugin, the font is antialiased, which 
is clearly visible when I do a screen capture and blow the bitmap up.  Jasc 
WebDraw also renders it antialiased in its Canvas pane.

Am I doing something wrong?

*Or* [hideous thought!] are viewer implementers just blithely ignoring
shape-rendering:crispEdges?  I hope not.  The folks who made the SVG 
standard obviously went to a huge amount of work.  It would be a shame if 
viewer implementers just didn't pay attention to what the standard says ...
