the word-spacing attribute doesn't seem to be implemented, see screenshot with rendering comparison Minefield/Opera: http://www.carto.net/neumann/mozillasvgbugs/word-spacing_minefield_opera.png
The upper window shows the rendering in Minefield ignoring the word-spacing attribute, the lower window shows the correct rendering in Opera 9.1.
Steps to Reproduce:
letter-spacing has the same problem - attribute not implemented.
FF3beta5, Windows XP SP2

Cameron, what are your thoughts now that bug 839955 is fixed?
It's not trivial to get working. IIRC nsTextFrame uses a PropertyProvider object to get the spacing property values, and it wasn't obvious where to get one of those (with the right values) from within nsSVGTextFrame2. longsonr recently tried to get this working -- how far did you get Robert?

This is as far as I got. Asserts occur and the DOM mostly doesn't work.
Rendering seems fairly reasonable though.
Just ran into this issue. Is there still any work being done?
Not by me currently so if you want to continue from where I left off, feel free.
AFAIK Gecko is the only engine that does not support these attributes.
Same here. Windows 7, FF 32.0.3
We need this feature, PLEEEEASE!
We would really like to use XUL and Gecko engine for rendering SVG graphics and this issue is halting the whole idea. How likely is it to be resolved in the next few months?
See comment 10 i.e. How likely are you to submit a patch to implement or pay someone to do so on your behalf, Dejan?

who can do it? - I would like to spend some money to solve this issue. Maybe we can share the costs??

Is there any chance that this 8(!!!!) year old bug may be resolved some time soon?
SVG is becoming more and more important in nowadays web. Therefore it is almost unacceptable, that firefox is the only browser lacking this basic typographic property (even IE is supporting svg letterspacing since versions now).
Hi, is any work being done on this? Our (https://desygner.com) users would love to have this experience on Firefox as well :)
Hi, my clients would appreciate if SVG I generate were viewable with Firefox, we are using letter-spacing.
