Animating strings of text along SVG defined paths.

I ran into serious scaling issues, as you can see. As more text appears on the page the animation starts chugging. As far as I can tell this is because each character is moved and rotated along the path separately. I ran into similar issues with canvas and javascript options. Believe it or not, THIS version performs the best.

*Chrome only for now (something about SMIL animations and textPath)
