SVG Code for Outlined Letters Text

Stroked Text

SVG can be used to create banners, charts, diagrams, graphs, illustrations, logos, maps, and many other things that require text. Fortunately you don't have to actually draw the text. You can create text using the SVG text element in which you can specify the attributes of the text. This tutorial explains how to code for outlined letters text in your SVG drawings using the SVG text element.

<svg width="300" height="60" version="1.1" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" style="border-style:solid;">
  <text x="25" y="40" font-family="Verdana" font-size="35" font-weight="bold" fill="white" stroke="black" stroke-width="2"">Stroked Text</text">
</svg">

Shown below are the attributes you can specify for a text element.
