Allow different declaration of svg fonts
Open, LowPublic


The svg renderer only accepts fonts declared as such:
font-family="DejaVu Sans" font-weight="bold"

A lot of vector editors (Illustrator, sometimes Inkscape) output their fonts like that:

The renderer falls back to the default, if fonts are declared as in the second example.
If this would be fixed, a lot of svg would then properly display the chosen font
