The problem with Inkscape is that the fonts don't print out at the size one 
would expect. They look fine on screen but not when printed out.
I now save my Inkscape text on path to an eps file, then import it into 
Scribus. I have to resize it once it's in Scribus but at least it can be 
done on screen as opposed to "trial and error" on the printer.
