There is a difficulty, because SVG 1.1 does not support text
formatting (line breaking...). So the legend is exported only in xhtml
format (where arrow, scale bar, map and all legend symbols are
embedded as svg code) -- open it in recent firefox or opera. You could
also write a simple script to extract all svg object from therion
xhtml export.
