Hello,

<snip>
We [W3 working group] explicitly invite comments on this specification

OK

I will break my comments up in to sections....

1.5 The flowPara element
The flowPara element marks a block of text as a logical paragraph
The children of the flowPara element will be rendered as a block:offset 
before and after from their parent's siblings.

?xml version="1.0"?>
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" 
         xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" 
         version="1.2">
  <flowText>
       <flowLayout>
           <flowRegion x="0" y="0" width="100" height="100"/>
       </flowLayout>
       <flowDiv>
               <flowPara/>
      </flowDiv>
  </flowText>
  <flowDiv/>
</svg>

or 

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" 
         xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" 
         version="1.2">
   <defs>
       <circle id="textCircle"cx="50" cy="100" r="20" fill="red" stroke="blue" stroke-width="5" />
   <defs>
  <flowText>
       <flowLayout>
           <flowRegion xlink:href="#textCircle"/>
      </flowLayout>
      <flowDiv>
        <flowPara/>
      </flowDiv>
  </flowText>
</svg>

I understand this tag. It is used to define a paragraph....great SVG can describe logical paragraphs.

QUESTION:
Should SVG have "preformatted" attribute?
Could someone give the advantages vs. disadvanages?
