In addition to text drawn in a straight line, SVG also includes the ability to place text along the shape of a <path> element. To specify that a block of text is to be rendered along the shape of a <path>, include the given text within a <textPath> element which includes an href attribute with a reference to a <path> element.

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100" xmlns="">

  <!-- to hide the path, it is usually wrap into a <defs> element -->
  <!-- <defs -->
  <path id="MyPath" fill="none" stroke="red"
          d="M10,90 Q90,90 90,45 Q90,10 50,10 Q10,10 10,40 Q10,70 45,70 Q70,70 75,50" />
  <!-- </defs> -->

    <textPath href="#MyPath">
      The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
