Hi Chris,
            thanks for the reply and yes it helped me to quite some extent.

OK that helps, but the full size images are too large for me and the basic
ones are too small. The display that I have supports only 640x480 sized
resolution and the full sized image does not fit alongside a SVG rendering
of same size with the given resolution. If I reduce the size of the 'full'
sized images using say any image manipulation program then not only it is
going to be tedious (as there are close to 300 images) but also the final
output might look little different from the SVG output. Any ideas on this?

Another related problem that I have with respect to the above is that since
there are different number of tests of each kind (292 tests for basic, 313
for full, and 185 for tiny) and the tests that I want to do are for a tiny
implementation, wouldn't running 'full' content be misleading as some of the
tests with full might give incorrect output with a SVG tiny implementation?

OK, but is there any compliance / conformance suite available for W3C SVG
specs? Can you also point me to some SVG viewer which is W3C SVG
1.2compliant and is free and /or easy to buid?

Thanks a ton,
Divick
