Hi,

  http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/ is a quick tool that analyzes SVG
documents and generates a report that shows which parts of the document
are not supported by certain profiles. The interface is unlikely to work
correctly in any browser, but pre-release versions of Opera9 and Firefox
2.x might give reasonable approximations. Profiles currently included
are

  SVG 1.1        (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/full11.profile.gz)
  SVG Basic 1.1  (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/basic11.profile.gz)
  SVG Tiny 1.1   (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/tiny11.profile.gz)
  Adobe 3.x      (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/asv3.profile.gz)
  Adobe 6.x Pre  (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/asv6.profile.gz)
  Opera 9.0 Beta (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/opera9.profile.gz)
  Firefox 1.5    (http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/ff15.profile.gz)

http://qa-dev.w3.org/~bjoern/svgcc/chart.html.gz has the complete data,
in a form that should work reasonably well across browsers. The data is
available in a custom XML format, see the URLs above. The data is losely
derived from vendor information and includes errors.

The information and tool are rather limited in their capabilities, e.g.
SVG Tiny 1.1 supports the fill="" attribute but not the "orange" color,
the tool cannot find such problems. Likewise, while opacity="" would be
listed as not supported in SVG Tiny 1.1, <set attributeName="opacity"
would pass the tool.

These resources exist purely to encourage people to submit better pro-
file data, more accurate date for current profiles and new data for
other implementations. Please submit better data in the XML format as
above, or as patches to the current documents.

Thanks,
