If you can plainly see your SVG text in Inkscape, but you can’t see it in your browser, try this:
- Select the text in Inkscape
- In the Text menu, select Convert to Text
- Save the document again
- Refresh your browser
I’m not sure what the point is of having the default text be of a type that doesn’t show up in Adobe’s latest SVG plug-in, but I would imagine this is a bug.
I hope that helps someone, because it drove me nuts!
