Scalable Vector Graphics - Text 2

This article provides some more explanation of SVG Text that shows how texts can be decorative as well.

Before reading further, read the following articles.

Now let's proceed to learn more about SVG decorative texts.

We will decorate the texts using the previous tags learned in previous parts of the article series. By using those we will make some interesting text.

Example 1

Simple coloured texts

  1. <html>  
  2.     <body>  
  3.         <svg height="200" width="600">  
  4.             <text x="20" y="60" style="fill:lime; font-size:60px;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  5.             <text x="120" y="100" style="fill:red; font-size:35px;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  6.             <text x="60" y="150" style="fill:blue; font-size:50px;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  7.         </svg>  
  8.     </body>  
  9. </html>   
Output



Example 2

Texts with multiple strokes
  1. <html>  
  2.     <body>  
  3.         <svg height="150" width="600">  
  4.             <text x="20" y="60" style="fill:none; stroke:green; font-size:60px; stroke-width:3;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  5.             <text x="120" y="100" style="fill:none; stroke:red; font-size:35px; stroke-width:1;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  6.             <text x="180" y="130" style="fill:none; stroke:blue; font-size:20px;"> Text with Stroke only </text>  
  7.         </svg>  
  8.     </body>  
  9. </html>   
Output



Example 3

Texts with stroke and fill
  1. <html>  
  2.     <body>  
  3.         <svg height="150" width="700">  
  4.             <text x="20" y="130" style="fill:lightgreen; stroke:green; font-size:60px; stroke-width:2;"> Text with Stroke and fill </text>  
  5.             <text x="120" y="70" style="fill:yellow; stroke:red; font-size:40px; stroke-width:1;"> Text with Stroke and fill </text>  
  6.             <text x="190" y="30" style="fill:cyan; stroke:blue; font-size:25px;"> Text with Stroke and fill </text>  
  7.         </svg>  
  8.     </body>  
  9. </html>   
Output
