SVG with filters as implemented in Inkscape can support:
- drop shadows
- blur
- arbitrary fill and stroke patterns, including gradients (this
includes "outlined" text, which simply has no fill and a colored
- text along paths ("curved text")

SVG with filters cannot easily support extruded text or projective
transformations. However, it can support other effects, which look far
more interesting than WordArt. See the file filters.svg distributed
with Inkscape.

If you edit the text in Inkscape, it will update in realtime.
