Subject Re: [Q] text background color and multiple line breaks
Date Wed, 03 Sep 2003 01:06:45 GMT
Thank you Thomas,

Is it possible to use some script to set the background color? I sew some
message mentioned about getBBox() and then set color on the SVGRect
object. But I am not sure if it is feasible.

Can you also give some more detailed informatin about how to use the
"preformatted" attribute? Can I just use <flowLine preformatted="true"/>?
I can not find any document on Batik extensions except W3C SVG 1.2 spec.

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Jay
