* Non-Latin characters encoded in the Latin character set

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.
