I believe that only Opera 11 renders this test case correctly. Each SVG 
list-style-image has a ratio of 1:1 in the list marker box region and 
each SVG marker is relative to the percentage width and height of the 
original SVG.


Safari 5 becomes unstable upon loading the test case. Firefox 4b shows 
the SVG marker relative to a default bullet size. IE9 resizes the SVG 
marker according to the width of the viewport. This is not what we want.
