In section 7.2 the fifth paragraph states:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/coords.html#ViewportSpace

<snip>
In the following example, an SVG graphic is embedded within a parent XML 
document which is formatted using CSS layout rules
</snip>

The specification would be much clearer if it would state:

"In the following example, an SVG graphic is embedded inline within a parent 
XML document which is formatted using CSS layout rules"

NOTICE:
This new sentence has the term "inline" add.......this is relevant 
.....because a SVG Graphic (svg content) can be embedded:
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/concepts.html#UsageOptions

1) by reference
2) inline
3) stand-alone
4) by link
5) referenced from CSS or XSL property

Add...In fact paragraphs 3 and 4 of this section make this 
distinction!!!.......might be a good idea to make a linke to 2.3 in this
area :-)

I have look at every use of embed in the SVG specification....and I find a 
lot of ....." general embeds".......that do not define one of the 5 ways 
that is can be embeded......it really does make a difference in some 
sections!!

It would be nice if you made this change before final 1.0 SVG Rec becomes 
reality :-)
