need SVGFontElement for SVG Fonts support

This blocks bug 10649.

To solve this bug means simply committing a simple DOM object for SVGFontElement.  This would not even necessitate being able to create a FontData object from this SVGFontElement, however adding code to do that would be nice.

SVG Font support is very important to get reliable results across implementations and platforms. It is also necessary for more advanced designs with fancy fonts or internationalization.

a patch (mostly just DOM bindings)

This patch doesn't really contain any particularly useful code, but I'm putting it here just so it's not lost somewhere in my patches directory. :)  It's not really worth landing just the DOM bindings, I need to work out how the rest of the SVG Font system will work first.  (There is discussion covering such in another bug.)

I'm pretty sure we don't need this bug any more.  Niko can offer a final comment.

You're right Eric, forgot to close this bug. SVG Fonts is now being actively developed in trunk.
