TR> Thanks for making this available!

Oops, thank you.

TR> There also is an issue with the RNG:

TR> q

OK so that fixes the xmlns error and adds the version attribute. Here
is a fixed version (the SVG 1.2 syntax, and the ASV6 version that
renders this using the public preview of ASV6).

What do people think about having to wrap flowPara in a flowDiv, by
the way?

We know that the rendering of the 'GO!" example, while better than the
previous draft, is still wrong (there is a soft hyphen displayed in
the middle of a word).

I will let Robin comment on the RNG errors.
