well, I'd like to see an example of Melissa's existing
coding before committing myself, but to take a simple example,
how can SVG record the idea that this <stroke> goes "down",
and is regarded as the first to be made? say the glyph has
3 strokes, and you think you know the order they come in. How
do you express that precedence in pure SVG? ok, so you
can use class attributes, but thats a bit of a hack.
