Dear Scalable Vector Graphics Working Group,

  http://www.w3.org/TR/2005/WD-SVGMobile12-20050413/svgudom.html has a
rather confused trait table, for example, for the 'font-family' "trait"
it states 'getTrait[single, computed font-family value]'. It's unclear
whether this refers to the font-family property or the font-family
attribute on the font-face element.

It is also unclear why it would return a single font family name, both
'font-family's allow multiple values and the font-family property in
particular computes to multiple font families aswell which is important
as text may be rendered with glyph sequences from multiple fonts. So
this seems wrong.

Other "traits" have similar problems, e.g. 'font-style' has a default
of "normal" even though the default for the font-style attribute on the
font-face element is "all". Please change the draft to clearly identify
the relationship between each trait in the table and the corresponding
attributes and/or properties.

regards,
