Hello,

I quickly discussed with Doug about validation of SVG today, and
remembered that a small issue with the (old) DTD for SVG 1.1 Basic
seemed to remain open. It actually caused us some serious problems
recently, when the errors from the DTD parsing caused partial breakage
of validator.w3.org.

Is it still on your radar?

From: http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2007May/0011.html
[[
The content model defined in SVG.clipPath.content is ambiguous. SP
correctly points this out. XML parsers are not required to report this
as an error though, even if it non-deterministic content models are
not allowed in XML.
]]

I believe the issue could be split in two:
* producing a "fixed" DTD and uploading that DTD to validator.w3.org
* fixing the DTD in place under www.w3.org/TR
… but ideally the two would be done together.

Thanks,
