text styles in SVG – hard-wired, or cofigurable?

I use Illustrator, frequently and enthusiastically, to create vector graphics which are then exported to .svg for use in a publishing workflow. Every time I save or edit a file, I then have to open it in a text editor and tidy up the styles =8-/

Font references such as CourierNewPS-Bold MT or Arial-Bold MT are rejected by the publishing engine, which only accepts CSS-ish definitions like font-family:Arial;font-weight:bold. And the Illustrator interface offers me (for example) nine flavours of Arial none of which is identified as MT.

Any tips for persuading Illustrator to output something closer to what I need will be welcome!

It's hard-wired. You can try the different options for style output, but that's it. Please post bugs & feature requests to http://illustrator.uservoice.com
