How to export as svg while (consistently) preserving text?

I have some design files which I need to export to svg. Even when the Font flag as set to "svg", rather then "convert to outlines", I find that AI does not consistently export text elements as svg text and will often "squash" text into a paths, which is unnacceptable for our puporses. In our case, it's more important that the text be preserved than it is for it to be pixel-perfect. I have fiddled with the font setting, hoping that by removing type-treatment, I would make some progress but so far, even the default fonts like Times New Roman, exhibit this mis-behavior.

This is an example of improper output. The text as been "squashed" into paths.

Do you have any special justification settings applied to the text?

Ligatures? Kerning?

 

What kind of text is it? Point text? Area text? What is the difference to the text that doesn't get outlined?
