Hi all,

    It recently came to my attention that the SVG 1.1 spec
states that the 'seed' attribute on feTurbulance is a
'<number>' however the implementation provided in the
specification requires the seed to be an '<integer>'.

	http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/filters.html#feTurbulence

    I suspect that the use of '<number>' is an editorial
mistake and it was intended to be an '<integer>', if so I would
appreciate if the WG would produce an errata to that effect.

    If however the WG decides that this was not an editorial
mistake then they should at least clarify how the floating
point seed should be converted to an 'integer' for use in
the code (rounding, truncate to zero, truncate to negative
infinity, etc) - so that implementations can provide the high
degree of interoperability required for this filter effect.

    Thanks for taking the time to review this issue.
