Fill and stroke on paragraphs
From Effects Task Force
fill and stroke applied to text
Gradients applied to different kind of text:
1) text with span: gradient fits to different line height
2) text with span: gradient takes the bounding box of the line
3) Gradient applied on paragraph: takes the bounding box of paragraph
4) Gradient applied on paragraph: takes the individual line height
SVG 1.1 does 2) and 3).
What is desirable for HTML paragraphs? Add new keyword beside objectBoundingBox, userSpaneOnUse? Something like lineDimension or orientation dependent lineHeight?
