The SVG Tiny 1.2 specification is quite hard to read, mostly because of 
grammatical errors and poor English. For instance, in section 11.5 one 
finds the following sentent: "Normally stroking involves calculating 
stroke outline of the shape's path in current user space and filling that 
outline with the stroke paint (color or gradient)." As others have pointed 
out, there are also a large number of typos.

As a W3C member it is quite embarrassing to see such text in a last call 

Please conduct a thorough proof-reading of the specification to correct 
the grammar and any typos.

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
