Jojada,
It's much better if you send email with just text and no attachments. (I've
copied the text from your attachment below.)

In answer to your question, viewBox doesn't allow CSS units. Only unitless
numbers can be specified for the four values. (I'll make sure the spec is
unambiguous on this point.)

Hi,

I am wondering if we may specify the viewBox attribute in CSS units, such as:
<svg  viewBox = “0mm 0mm 50mm 50mm” > ?
.
If yes, will a single unit in the user coordinate system become equivalent
to one CSS unit specifed in the viewBox (i.e 1 mm) ?

Thanks,
Jojada.-
