Comment:
"The 'text' element renders its first glyph (after bidirectionality reordering) at the initial current text position, which is established by the 'x' and 'y' attributes on the 'text' element (with possible adjustments due to the value of the 'text-anchor' property). After the glyph(s) corresponding to the given character is (are) rendered, the current text position is updated for the next character. In the simplest case, the new current text position is the previous current text position plus the glyphs' advance value."


I think this should say "the current text position is updated for the next glyph" not "character", since there are numerous scripts where a combining character combines to the left of the glyph for the base character or characters in left-to-right text (for a simple example, see the second para at http://rishida.net/scripts/myanmar/#vsplacement, where the second glyph from the left is displayed before the two characters that follow it). The current text makes it sound like most scripts are like English.
