Hello,

ok, thank you, I think, this is very helpful for my understanding
of the begin time list and the end time list.
As far as I understand now, the end time list is only related to
the content of the end attribute and not to all possible end times
of the active duration. This seems to be my misunderstanding
and confusion with different ends with different meanings.
This is much simpler as I expected ;o)
Then it is quite clear, that the Adobe plugin and Opera and me 
are wrong with the interpretation examples like this.
The Adobe plugin, Opera and KSVG1 seem to be wrong even
with a simpler example like
dur="10s" begin="5s" end="4s"
Looks really like some further work is needed to get the correct 
interpretation common too...


Thanks again for your help to understand this in detail...
