SVG Fonts

Not sure if this is the right forum, but seems to be the closest!  I have some Javascript produced SVG that works fine.

However, I need to create some text in Red - the text is usually white on a black b/g, or black on a white b/g depending on the config. I can create the red text, but it seems to be drawn as a 'graphic' rather than text  if you follow! As such is is slightly chunkier, badly anti-aliased etc. and I'm getting complaints....

Hopefully I'm doing something basically wrong that is easily fixed. Code below (note commented lines were added to try and fix the problem)

    myClab = mySvgDocument.getElementById(icao + "clab");
    myClab.setAttribute("stroke", "red");
 //   myClab.setAttribute("font-size", "8pt");
 //   myClab.setAttribute("font-style", "lighter");
 //   myClab.setAttribute("font-family", "arial");

RE: SVG Fonts

OK - I think the problem is I need to use fill not stroke, but it doesn't work.

 myClab.setAttribute("fill", "red");
