Interestingly, the message after that one (SVG Part II) describes a
'bug' in renderSVG - the parameters to SVGCanvas.drawString are in a
different order to those in the the PDF Canvas class. What's more,
SVGCanvas.drawCentredString calls SVGCanvas.drawString, but passes the
arguments in the wrong order! I guess no-one's using
SVGCanvas.drawCentredString or drawRightString.
