Re: does the systemLanguage attribute apply to tspan? alternatively does the switch element take x & y coordinates?

Tor, Doug, Chris...

the reason that 'switch transform' doesn't work for me is this use case:

  <switch transform='translate(130,250)'>
                 <g  systemLanguage="it"><use xlink:href="#sound"  
id="sound1it"/><text >giochi</text></g>
		<g systemLanguage="en"><use xlink:href="#sound" id="sound1en"/ 
 ><text >games too</text></g>
                 <g><use xlink:href="#sound" id="sound1"/><text  
 >games</text></g>
                 </switch>

where #sound is an icon whose position is not related directly to the  
text in the switch statement.
typically  x="10%" y="15%" width="20%" height="30%" but omitted for  
clarity.

thus icons are all over the page, but the text is only in one fixed  
position.
http://www.peepo.co.uk give a reasonable approximation ~:"

One could duplicate evaluation of systemLanguage, but that seems  
kludgy and makes for harder maintenance.
ie there might be cultural reasons for changing the icon for some  
languages, etc.
