SVG Multiline Text

There are two way to define multi line text. first method, display every line by line of a separate text element. Or used to tspan element within text element. tspan can used to separator text. For example

SVG multiline text Normal 1'st Line Second Line Third Line
<svg width="260" height="60" version="1.1"
     xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <text x="0" y="15" fill="blue">
    Normal
    <tspan >1'st Line</tspan>
    <tspan x="0" y="35" fill="green" >Second Line</tspan>
    <tspan x="0" y="55" fill="red" >Third Line</tspan>
  </text>
</svg> 

In this example separate line by span and its coordinates. So coordinates are very important to define a location of tspan text. When we are not define tspan coordinate then text are display in single line. See this example.


Normal 1'st Line Second Line Third Line
<svg width="320" height="30" version="1.1"
     xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
  <text x="0" y="15" fill="blue">
    Normal
    <tspan >1'st Line</tspan>
    <tspan fill="green" >Second Line</tspan>
    <tspan fill="red" >Third Line</tspan>
  </text>
</svg> 

This are useful to write colorful text for a single line.
