> The problem that I see is the inline SVG element. This is not supported for HTML 4.01 and therefore the tests can't pass there. But even for XHTML 1.1 the namespaces for Xlink and SVG must be added to the 'svg' element. Can the build system take care of that?

The build of the transforms test suite is online now at:

and in the harness. It's part of the daily build and will update each night around 1am PDT.

The transform test suite is output in HTML5 and XHTML1. For the XHTML1 version the build is (hopefully) inserting the proper SVG namespace info.

This is the first time the build system has converted HTML 5 source to XHTML1 output. Please review it carefully to make sure I didn't miss something.
