Hello,

I'd like your opinion on something.

In an svg authoring tool. How would you like support for foreignObject?

Assuming support for rendering generic CSS+XML inside the <foreignObject>

A tool that lets you draw a rectangle on the canvas (that is resizable
later) to set the x,y,width,height of the <foreignObject>

On release of the button after dragging the rectangle, should the user
browse to a DTD (or Schema) and then select an element from the DTD (for
example <body> or <p> if he selected a XHTML DTD), which will be the top
element inside the <foreignObject>, and then he can start typing inside it.

Any thoughts?

thanks,
