Can you provide a link to an example? As far as I'm aware ASV has always
overridden the width and height of the SVG with the width and height  
of the
<embed>/<object> tag (as required by the SVG spec). As a result  
lengths in the SVG should be relative to the <embed> width/height if  
the SVG
doesn't have a viewBox, or if the SVG does have a viewBox attribute,  
the SVG
should fully scale.

Double checking IE with ASV 6 build 38363 on the following page, this  
seems to
be the case:


Firefox 3 betas should now be doing the spec mandated overriding of  
the width
and height of the SVG just as ASV does. The behavior of Firefox 2 is  
just plain
broken I'm afraid (it shouldn't scroll).

I also checked the link above in Opera 9.50 beta build 9815 and  
Safari 3.0.4
(523.15) and they have the same broken behavior of Firefox 2  

I've not noticed any SVG implementation that clips instead of  

Hopefully Opera and Safari will soon fix their SVG implementations to  
do the
overriding thing, and Firefox 2 will fade fast after the release of  
Firefox 3.
