I am trying to learn about SVG curves and how font glyphs are built. Specifically how you taper complex curves. I'm wondering if it's the stroke that is tapered or it is a fill. I'm wondering too how the structure of the SVG markup is to allow for animating a font. Wondering if one could link to a good, possibly animatable ("stroke" animation, even though what may be stroke may actually be a fill of some sort), svg glyph or font.
Searching for free, downloadable SVG fonts leads to a lot of pinterest and dribbble posts without content, or paid-only content.
