I was reading this mail thread:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-svg/2007Jan/0001.html

And it was mentioned that <svg> was a replaced element.

When I look at the definition of a replaced element:
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#replaced-element
Apparently this applies to the <svg> element, right?
"An element that is outside the scope of the CSS formatter"
So the content of an <svg> element is outside the scope of the CSS formatter?
Wat is exactly is the CSS formatter?

Definition of Rendered content:
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/conform.html#rendered-content
"The rendered content of a replaced element comes from outside the
source document"
That seems to be not the case for the <svg> element, or am I
misreading this in some way?

Regards,
Martijn
