Designing SVG fonts using styles
Just supporting SVG Fonts as per spec is not much fun. Designing fonts in Inkscape should be much more than just being able to make a particular shape marked as a glyph. This specification describes how to make Inkscape THE tool for font design.
Most of the description comes from Yuri Gordon's LiveJournal blog (head of Letterhead font design studio) and some ideas are borrowed from Ricardo Lafuente who created http://tinkerhouse.net/shoebot/ and http://tinkerhouse.net/lettersoup.
