There's not a whole lot to show for xsvg yet. The results at:

contain everything that currently passes. The group rendering is
probably the only really interesting piece that's there already. xsvg
does have good low-level support for stroked splines, (courtesy of
Xr), but there's some little bug up above preventing those tests from
