Created attachment 8726675 [details] text_on_line.zip User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; WOW64; rv:36.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/36.0 Build ID: 20150305021524 Steps to reproduce: 1) Open the attached files in Firefox. Actual results: Both files display in different ways. The only difference is the additional whitespace in front of the text in text_on_line.svg. Expected results: text_on_line.svg should be displaying in the same way as text_on_line-padded.svg
This bug was reproduced on Firefox 44 OS X 10.11 and 10.10 and Iceweasel 43.
The x attribute does not apply to textPath elements. Adding padding gives the x attribute whitespace in the text element and the x then applies to the whitespace character.
