Subject Re: Converting Font to SVG: all glyphs are rotated
Date Tue, 14 Jun 2011 16:14:11 GMT
I haven't had time to verify your example, but I suspect you'll find
that the fonts aren't rotated 180º, but flipped vertically; don't
forget that SVG coordinates are upside down wrt cartesian. This annoys
me on a regular basis!
