   There is no SVG here, so there is no use of GraphicsNode.
Tonny was talking about getting the outline of a complex SVG
text element.

   If you want to turn Java2D text into outlines you can use
TextLayout.getOutline, however this has nothing to do with Batik:

shapTxt = txtTl.getOutline();

   If you want to output this to SVG then you will want to
look at the batik.svggen.SVGGraphics2D class where you
can draw your outlines as Java2D shapes and it will generate
appropriate SVG 'path' element(s).

    Perspective is not a 2D effect, it is a 3D effect.  It is
difficult to apply Perspective and other weird effects to
complex geometry and keep the geometry as 'curves' because the
effects do not map spline to spline.  If you are willing to
flatten the data then this becomes a simple matter of mapping
