Hi all

To have the editable  attribute in SVG 1.2 is great news !!!

I tried to implement editable SVG text using DOM with ASV3.0 and ASV6.0
and had some problems:

It isn't difficult to set the cursor to a flowDiv because there
is a region where the text is located.

But think about:

<text x="20" y="20 editable="true"/>

How to set the cursor?
If there is no text there is no area to set the cursor/focus (not selectable
with pointer).
Cursor up/down:

<text y="0" editable="true">first line</text>
<text y="20" editable="true>second line</text>

If the focus is in the second line and I press the "cursor up" key - does
it mean that the cursor moves to the the first line?

<text y="20" editable="true">first line in Document</text>
<text y="0" editrable="true">second line in Document</text>

What happens here if I press the "cursor up/down" key?
Is it possible to use the <tab>-key to set the focus?
