<h1>Cross-browser text stroke using SVG</h1>
<p>This is how browsers with SVG support will see it:</p>
<h1 class="stroke">
  <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" width="640" height="72" viewBox="0 0 640 72">
    <text x="0" y="64">Stroke of Genius</text>
<p>This is how older browsers will see it:</p>
<!-- Note you can use the same code as before, I just removed the SVG parts to simulate the effect of not supporting SVG -->
<h1 class="stroke">Stroke of Genius</h1>
.stroke {
  margin: 0;
  font: 400 4.5em/1 'Alfa Slab One', serif;
