     Unfortunately the website is wrong.  These attributes are not
currently implemented.  They are not trivial to implement
(given the complexities of SVG text dx/dy etc) and
as of right now I know of no plans to implement them.
Contributions are always welcome!  I could provide a sketch on how
they might be implemented, but it would be a fair amount of work
to come up to speed on how text is layed out in Batik.
