+ <p>This method is usually invoked indirectly via the text method in the <a href="rvgclip.html#new">RVG::ClipPath</a>, <a href="rvggroup.html#new">RVG::Group</a>, <a href="rvgpattern.html#new">RVG::Pattern</a>, and <a href="rvg.html#new">RVG</a> classes.</p>
+ <p>Text objects are containers, so this method yields to a block if one is present. A text object can contain <a href="rvgtspan.html#new">RVG::Tspan</a> objects that are added directly via <a href="#tspan">tspan</a>, or indirectly via <a href="#tref">tref</a>.</p>

+ <p>The basic styles include font styles and text styles. Note that &times;Magick uses the font styles to select a font from the available fonts. If it cannot find a font that exactly matches it will use the closest matching font. Unlike MS Windows, &times;Magick will <em>not</em> alter a font - by artificially slanting it to to simulate italics, for example - to produce a match.</p>

+ <h4>Description</h4>
+ <p>Unlike the basic styles, these styles are emulated by RVG. Consequently any use of a non-default value for one of these styles will probably cause your script to slow down noticeably. If you specify an invalid value for any of these styles RVG ignores the value and uses the default. RVG frequently uses approximate measurements to emulate these styles so the results will not be as precise as when &times;Magick is doing the work.</p>
+ <h4>Styles</h4>
+ <dl>
+ <dt>:writing_mode</dt>
+ <dd>There are two possible values for :writing_mode, 'lr' for left-to-right (most Latin-based documents) and 'tb' for top-to-bottom (or vertical) text such as for column labels. The default is 'lr'.</dd>
+ <dt>:baseline_shift</dt>
+ <dd>Adjusts the baseline. There are five possible values: 'baseline' (the default), 'super', 'sub', a percentage specified as 'NN%', or a number. For the last two choices, positive numbers move the baseline upward. The percentage is a percentage of the line height.</dd>
+ <dt>:letter_spacing</dt>
+ <dd>Specifies an amount of space to be added between each letter. The default is 0.</dd>
+ <dt>:word_spacing</dt>
+ <dd>Specifies an amount of space to be added between each word. This amount is added for each blank between words, so if the words are separated by two blanks, for example, then twice the additional space is added. The default is 0.</dd>
+ <dd>RVG uses this statement to separate words: <strong>words = text.split(::Magick::RVG::WORD_SEP)
+</strong>You can change the regular expression that RVG uses to determine word breaks by assigning a new value to the <code>::Magick::RVG::WORD_SEP</code> constant. By default the value of <code>::Magick::RVG::WORD_SEP</code> is <code>/ /</code>.</dd>
+ <dt>:glyph_orientation_vertical</dt>
+ <dd>Applies only when :writing_mode='tb'. This style can have one of four values: 0, 90, 180, 270. The default is 90. This style specifies a rotation on each glyph. With the default value, each glyph is rotated 90 degrees. When :glyph_orientation_vertical=0 each glyph appears in its "normal" (upright) orientation.</dd>
+ <dt>:glyph_orientation_horizontal</dt>
+ <dd>Applies only when :writing_mode='lr'. This style can have one of four values: 0, 90, 180, 270. The default is 0. This style specifies a rotation on each glyph. With the default value, each glyph appears in its "normal" (upright) orientation.</dd>
