In January UAWG through the PF group submitted comments to Compound
Documents group
[http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-cdf/2006Jan/0068]

the CD group has responded
[http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-cdf/2006May/0000]
below is a specific issue from the May message above...
<snip>
3. Scalable Child Elements
http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-WICD-20051219/#scalable-child-formats <uawg> We
agree with the requirements for functions user agents must support. On
reading this section, we hoped to find something about the user being able
to scale the destination box. For example: a user has default font size set
to 18 points. An svg element with fixed size (100x100) is referenced in a
document. The default font size causes the information to expand behind the
bounding edge of the svg element. The user must now focus on the svg and
scroll within the svg. </uawg>

<CDFWG> The CDF WG suggests this issue be taken up with the HTML group that
owns the <obj> element. <CDFWG>

No change was made based on this comment.

<jim>On the call I used a scenario of flash content inside the object, and
the flash content being required to provide its own scaling and scrolling
functions because the <obj> cannot 'know' what it contains, so the <obj>
(browser) providing the scaling functionality would serve no useful purpose.

Rereading the Scalable Child elements information in the recommendation, I
am not sure I have a clear understanding of how these compound elements are
to interact. Will need to think of a scenario to illustrate my thoughts.

Anyone else have any comments?
