The font selections "sans-serif" and "serif" are generally good choices, as they do not impose a specific font on the renderer, making the SVG more portable. However, this may cause alignment and positioning issues as the font actually used varies from system to system.

Tip: if you absolutely want to use a font that is installed on your computer but not on the server, you can convert the text to a path. For example, with Inkscape, you can use the command "Path -> Object to path" or "Shift+Ctrl+C" after selecting the text. However, the text is not stored as text any more, so that it is more difficult to modify or copy-paste. Also, for any significant amount of text, the file size can be increased dramatically.

Installed font packages[edit]

The installed font packages are:

Non-Truetype fonts
  • ghostscript-fonts (from distro)
  • tetex-fonts (from distro)
  • urw-fonts (from distro)
Western TrueType fonts

DejaVu fonts are an effort by the open source community to extend the basic Latin font Bitstream Vera to Unicode coverage so it covers more characters and other alphabets.

CJK TrueType fonts
Indic script TrueType fonts

All of the South Asian fonts are Lohit fonts released by Red Hat maintained by the Fedora Project. (Website & Download)

  • fonts-bengali-1.10-2 (Fedora Core 4)
  • fonts-gujarati-1.10-2 (Fedora Core 4)
