SVG text kerning very ugly when elements are zoomed
Reported by meer...@gmail.com, Sep 28 2011
Chrome Version : 15.0.874.21 (other versions also tested) URLs (if applicable) : http://www.mysparebrain.com/svgbug.html Other browsers tested: Add OK or FAIL after other browsers where you have tested this issue: Safari 5: FAIL Firefox 4.x: OK IE 7/8/9: OK What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Create a text span within an SVG group subject to a scale transformation 2. Change the scale factor on the transformation See " Bug #2 " instructions on test page above What is the expected result? Text should be rendered with strokes and kerning appropriate for the rendered size on screen What happens instead? Text is rendered with the correct strokes, but letter spacing is insappropriate (wildly so at times) Please provide any additional information below. Attach a screenshot if possible. SVG spans should be rendered as first screen shot, but if zoomed out a long way when the text spans have their content set (scale ~ 0.1) and then shown normal size (scale 1.0) then it redraws as per the second screenshot until the DOM element has its content reset.

You're welcome (similar bug reports with test cases for webkitRequestFullScreen() coming soon) - thanks for fixing it, and for the best HTML5 browser even before that. I'd invite you to view the webapp that uses these features, but this is not the place :)
