Here’s my (one) test, too, attached.  Here’s the description of the
test, from the contents of the file:

  This tests various features of SVG fonts from SVG 1.1.  It consists of
  a <text> element with 33 characters, styled using an SVG font that has
  different advance values for each glyph.  The script uses
  SVGTextElementContent.getStartPositionOfChar() to determine where the
  glyph corresponding to each character was placed, and thus to work out
  whether the SVG font was used correctly.
  The font uses 100 units per em, and the text is set in 100px.  Since
  font-size gives the size of the em box
  (, the scale of the
  coordinate system for the glyphs is the same as the SVG document.
  The expectedAdvances array holds the expected advance value for each
  character, and expectedKerning holds the (negative) kerning for each
  character.  getPositionOfChar() returns the actual x coordinate for the
  glyph, corresponding to the given character, and if multiple characters
  correspond to the same glyph, the same position value is returned for
  each of those characters.
  Here are the reasonings for the advance/kerning values.  Note that for
  a given character at index i, the expected position is
  sum(expectedAdvances[0:i-1] + expectedKerning[0:i-1]).
  char     advance  kerning  reasoning
  -------  -------  -------  --------------------------------------------------
  A        10000    0        Normal character mapping to a single glyph.
  B        0        0        First character of a two character glyph, so the
                             current position isn't advanced until the second
  C        200      0        Second character of a two character glyph, so now
                             the position is advanced.
  B        300      0        Although there is a glyph for "BC" in the font,
                             it appears after the glyph for "B", so the single
                             character glyph for "B" should be chosen instead.
  D        1100     0        Normal character mapping to a single glyph.
  A        10000    200      Kerning of -200 is specified in the font between
                             the "A" and "EE" glyphs.
  E        0        0        The first character of a two character glyph "EE".
  E        1300     0        The second character of a two character glyph.
  U        0        0        This is a glyph for the six characters "U+0046",
                             which happen to look like a valid unicode range.
                             This tests that the <glyph unicode=""> in the
                             font matches exact strings rather than a range,
                             as used in the kerning elements.
  +        0        0        Second character of six character glyph.
  0        0        0        Third character of six character glyph.
  0        0        0        Fourth character of six character glyph.
  4        0        0        Fifth character of six character glyph.
  6        1700     0        Sixth character of six character glyph.
  U        0        0        The same six character glyph that looks like a
                             Unicode range.  One of the kerning elements has
                             u1="U+0046" u2="U+0046", which shouldn't match
                             this, because those attributes are interpreted
                             as Unicode ranges if they are, and normal
                             strings otherwise.  Thus there should be no
                             kerning between these two glyphs.
  G        2300     200      Kerning is between this character and the next
                             "G", since there is an <hkern> element that
                             uses a Unicode range on its u1="" attribute
                             and a glyph name on its g2="" attribute which
                             both match "G".
  G        2300     0        Normal character with kerning before it.
  H        3100     0        A glyph with graphical content describing the
                             glyph, rather than a d="" attribute.
  I        4300     0        Glyphs are checked in document order for one
                             that matches, but the first glyph with
                             unicode="I" also has lang="zh", which disqualifies
                             it.  Thus the second glyph with unicode="I"
                             is chosen.
  I        4100     0        Since this I has xml:lang="zh" on it in the text,
                             the first glyph with lang="zh" matches.
  J        4700     -4700    A normal glyph with kerning between the "J" and the
                             next glyph "A" equal to the advance of the "J"
                             glyph, so the position should stay the same.
  A        10000    0        Normal glyph with kerning before it.
  K        5900     0        The first glyph with unicode="K" does not match,
                             since it has orientation="v", so the second
                             glyph with unicode="K" is chosen.
  <spc>    6100     0        The space character should select the glyph with
                             unicode=" ", despite it having a misleading
  L        6700     0        The "L" character should select the glyph with
                             unicode=" ", despite it having a misleading
  A        2900     0        An <altGlyph> element is used to select the
                             glyph for U+10085 instead of the one for "A".
  U+10085  2900     0        Tests glyph selection with a non-plane-0
  A        10000    0        A final normal character.
  In addition, the script tests the value returned by
  SVGTextContentElement.getNumberOfChars(), which in this case should be 33.
  If it returned 34, then it incorrectly counted UTF-16 codepoints or
  See for a description of the glyph
  matching rules, and
  for a description of getStartPositionOfChar() and getNumberOfChars().
  Note also that the test uses DOMImplementation.createDocument() to create
  the SVG document.  This seems to cause browsers trouble for the SVG DOM
  interfaces, since the document isn't being "rendered" as it might be
  if it were in an <iframe>.  Changing the test to use an <iframe> will
  at least let you see the main part of the test running.
