There are no gradients, so that shouldn't be our problem. Is there
a simple command within inkscape to globally convert all text to
paths ? (Sorry, I'm not an inkscape expert as you can tell.)
As it stands, the logo only consists of filled and stroked rectangles
and stroked and filled Arial text. I can't imagine that logos would come

saying that there are unsuported features, and the text is no longer
bounded by the rectangles.
