SVG Fonts allow more than a one by one maping of single chars, like you
wrote in one of your previous mails before. You can combine chars and
represent them with one Glyph. For example you can combine the two f's
in 'coffee' to one glyph.
You can set the horizontal or vertical kerning on ranges of chars,
unicode-ranges and more. And IIRC both, Opera and WebKit (nightly),
support this.
It is much more possible, that the current implemenations of Opera and
WebKit support already. And yes, there is still more to do for full
support of SVG Fonts 1.1.
