           Summary: kerning does not work when referencing an SVG font
                    using @font-face in HTML
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 525.x (Safari 3.2)
          Platform: Unspecified
        OS/Version: Unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Major
          Priority: P2
         Component: SVG
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org

I created a SVG font file and wanted to try kerning between two glyphs (V and G in the attached file).
The kerning works when open the SVG file directly in browser but does not work if i include it in HTML styles using @font-face
The same SVG file I converted to ttf and included in html file works in firefox.
Steps to reporduce (attached sample files in .zip file): 
1. Create a svg font file with kerning pair defined using hkern
2. create a HTML file which reference SVG fonts using 
    font-family: kern;
    src:url(font01.svg) format('svg');

Expected result:
Expected kerning to occur between the kern pair

Actual Results:
No Kerning visible. Although the text was displayed using font defined in SVG
