Updated Word Art with Python and SVG's

I’ve added some basic text parsing and line splitting capabilities to the script. This lets me do interesting things like color segments of the path differently depending on context clues.

The line always begins at a bright green dot and ends on a dark green dot.

Here's the Bible, with every sentence containing 'Jesus', 'God', 'Lord', etc. highlighted green, and 'Devil', 'Satan', 'Hell', etc. highlighted in red.
Here's the Wizard of Oz, with every sentence containing 'Dorothy' highlighted yellow.

I’ve demonstrated some more uses of the program below. Again, this code is all open source, written by me, and available on my Github.

Lyme Savvy - Split by writer. Yellow = Sharon, Green = Bob, Red = Jeff, Black = Other.
A Brief History of Time by Stephen Hawking - 'Time' is highlighted.
Making a Pearl - 'Pearl' and 'Grit' are highlighted.
Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance by Robert Pirsig - 'Quality' is highlighted.
