Congratulations on your SVG Proposed Recommendation [1]. These are mainly
minor editorial comments. A few are repeated from the CR. Best wishes for
your project.

"font-size: 80%" is too small to read in Netscape 4 on a Mac. Maybe you
could make an adjustment ('small' might work). For example see the DTD:
http://www.w3.org/2001/01/screenshots/20010815-SVG1.png

The files will be 10% smaller if they had no indents (20% for files
with many tables). Please process with Tidy with indentation off
(http://www.w3.org/People/Raggett/tidy/).

In 5.1.1, the first example uses "http://someplace.org" which belongs
to someone. Please use IANA's example.org, example.com, or example.net
instead; this case illustrates why. See RFC 2606 section 3 at
http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2606.txt

Globally, make each occurrence of "standalone" and "stand-alone" match.
W3C generally favors M-W which says it's hyphenated; American Heritage
says it is one word. Either is fine.

Also globally in the upper part of each section, omit the comma after
the month in "19 July, 2001".

From here down, a section number is followed by a quote and then a
suggestion or comment.

In 7.2, two paragraphs are almost identical. They could say instead:

The width attribute on the outermost 'svg' element establishes the
viewport's width, unless:

*   the SVG content is a separately stored resource that is embedded
     by reference (such as the 'object' element in [XHTML]), or the SVG
     content is embedded inline within a containing document;

*   and the referencing element or containing document is styled using
     CSS [CSS2] or XSL [XSL];

*   and there are CSS-compatible positioning properties [CSS2-POSN]
     specified on the referencing element (e.g., the 'object' element)
     or on the containing document's outermost 'svg' element that are
     sufficient to establish the width of the viewport.

Under these conditions, the positioning properties establish the
viewport's width.

Similarly, if there are positioning properties [CSS2-POSN] specified on
the referencing element or the on the outermost 'svg' that are
sufficient to establish the height of the viewport, then these
positioning properties establish the viewport's height; otherwise, the
height attribute on the outermost 'svg' element establishes the
viewport's height.

In 10.14, x, dx and rotate are run-on sentences. You could
break them after "ignored." I used a full stop.

     The <coordinate> values are processed in the same manner as the x
     attribute on the 'tspan' element, with the following exception:
     If the referenced alternate glyphs are rendered instead of the
     Unicode characters inside the 'altGlyph' element, then any
     absolute X coordinates specified via an x attribute on this
     element or any ancestor 'text' or 'tspan' elements for Unicode
     characters 2 through <n> within the 'altGlyph' element are
     ignored. Any absolute X coordinate specified via an x
     attribute on this element or any ancestor 'text' or 'tspan'
     elements for the first Unicode character within the 'altGlyph'
     element sets a new absolute X coordinate for the current text
     position before rendering the first alternate glyph.

"...The fragments below show two pairs of equivalent 'text' elements.
     Each pair consists of two equivalent 'text' elements, with the
     first 'text' element using xml:space='default' and the second
     using xml:space='preserve'."
The only difference between examples is the character data (not the
markup as the prose indicates).

In MacIE5, the line numbers are off by one in the example. It's fairly
easy to understand anyway though.

Also in 15.2, the last two items (5 and 6) in the ordered list are in
p's which can be removed (to make the items' vertical spacing match).

In 19.2.6, after "In the syntax specifications that follow," you could
say this sentence once (it appears 28 times on one page): "Except for
any SVG-specific rules explicitly mentioned in this specification, the
normative definition for this attribute is the SMIL Animation
[SMILANIM] specification." Then cut the "In particular" from each link
to SMIL Animation.

UAAG doesn't mention SVG. Do you mean that Conforming SVG Viewers are
likely to be required to conform to these Priority 1 guidelines?
