Hi,

It says in the specs:

http://www.croczilla.com/~alex/reference/SVG/REC-SVG11-20030114/coords.html#Units <http://www.croczilla.com/%7Ealex/reference/SVG/REC-SVG11-20030114/coords.html#Units>:
For percentage values that are defined to be relative to the size of viewport:

    * For any x-coordinate value or width value expressed as a percentage of the
viewport, the value to use is the specified percentage of the actual-width in
user units for the nearest containing viewport, where actual-width is the width
dimension of the viewport element WITHIN THE USER COORDINATE SYSTEM for the
viewport element.

... and similarly for y-coordinates.

Is it really the intention of the specs to have lengths be relative to 
the viewport size? It seems to make more sense to have them relative to 
the viewbox.

Alex
