Thanks Dave. It helps. And it means that at least on test file will have
to change.

According to the minutes of the f2f meeting in Needham
utes_may_2008.pdf), here's what we said about style properties issues:

Style property issues

*	stroke-type

Resolution: Allow line types 1-15, plus negatives.  A reference to an
undefined negative has no effect. Use numbers for all the indices,
instead of names.

*	fill-style

Resolution: Use integers. Note: The name should be interior-style.

*	hatch-type

Resolution: Allow negative values.  Note: The name should be hatch-index

*	pattern-type

Resolution: The user would need some knowledge of pattern table to use
it.  Note: The name should be pattern-index

*	fill-offset: Resolution: The name should be fill-referencepoint

Hope this clarifies....

	I'm reading the on the new style properties, and I see some
	It's unclear with the current spec which style properties are
set by a name or integer value. At the moment it seems like stroke-type
can be set using "solid" or "1". But other style properties like
interior-style and hatch-index only seem to be settable using it's
integer value. I think some clarification and consistency is needed.
	While it's still unclear if PTC will implement
getStyleProperty(), I wonder if the implementation has to return the
exact same string that was used to set the attribute. 
	Example for stroke-type: setStyleProperty("stroke-type",
"solid"), getStyleProperty("stroke-type") returns 1.
	Example for stroke-weight: setStyleProperty("stroke-weight",
"200%"), getStyleProperty("stroke-weight") returns 0.5 (assuming
original was 0.25).

	Current wording says: "[...] Valid values are: integers 1-6
(which correspond to solid, dash, dot, dash-dot, dash-dot-dot)", the
"1-6" should be replaced by "1-5".
