           Summary: Foreign Content
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.w3.org/2010/06/07-svg-minutes.html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec (editor: Ian Hickson)
        AssignedTo: ian@hixie.ch
        ReportedBy: krisk@microsoft.com

The spec should state as a MUST that for foreign content the default style
comes from CSS2.1 spec and not the default style of the foreign content.  For
example,  in a SVG document the root's default overflow == 'clipped' and for
HTML the default for overflow == 'visible'.

This was discussed and agreed upon to be correct by the SVG WG that the default
for overflow should be 'visible', because when svg is in a HTML document it
needs to follow CSS2.1 specification.


By adding this it should help make SVG in html more interoperable w/o having
web authors add svg { overflow: visible } to every HTML page that contains SVG.
