I am working on trying to understand what styling properties affect 
parameters of different SVG elements.

I have noticed in the DTD for SVG:

The following presentation attributes apply to text content elements.
<!ENTITY % PresentationAttributes-TextContentElements
'alignment-baseline'
'baseline-shift'
'glyph-orientation-horizontal'
'glyph-orientation-vertical'
'kerning'
'letter-spacing'
'text-decoration'
'word-spacing'
'direction'
'unicode-bidi'

and than I started my investigation into the term
"text content elements":

text content element
One of SVG's elements that can define a text string that is to be rendered 
onto the canvas. SVG's text content elements are the following: 'text', 
'tspan', 'tref' and 'textPath'.

then I looked at the properties index.....and found

1) that the "applies to" column for the following properties states:
'text, 'tspan', 'tref', 'altGlyph', 'textPath' elements
'alignment-baseline'
'baseline-shift'
'glyph-orientation-horizontal'
'glyph-orientation-vertical'
'kerning'
'letter-spacing'
'text-decoration'
'word-spacing'

2) that the "applies to" column for the following properties states:
'text', 'tspan', 'tref' and 'textPath' elements
'direction'
'unicode-bidi'

Question:
1) How does 'altGlyph'....which is not in the definition of "text content 
element" fit in to the "applies to" column of the properties index....

2) should 'altGlyph' be included in the "applies to" column of the 
properties...'direction' and 'unicode-bidi'

I hope someone can help.....I trying to find out if I should send in a 
report to the SVG working group svg-comments@w3.org

any help will be appreciated
