Texts in SVG do not show up in browsers

If you create a SVG vector image using Inkscape with text(s) you may encounter this: all the texts do not show up in any browser. It is because Inkscape using flowed-text by default which is an un-finished function and is not implemented yet in any other vector renderers (like the browsers). So, what you can do now is to convert those texts into regular texts or non-flowed-text by:

1. Select the text(s)
2. In Text menu, select Convert to text
