Hi All,
 
The test styling-pres-01-t contains the following piece of XML code:
<g fill="green"> 
<rect width="200" height="160" x="140" y="70" fill="red !important"/> 
</g> 

It is associated with the following comment:
> Check that !important in presentation attribute is an error. 
> A fill attribute is set to red with !important. It thus has no 
> specified value, and inherits from its parent a green fill. A green 
> rectangle is displayed. 

On the other hand, SVG 1.1 specification Appendix F.2 states that:
> ... 
> an SVG document fragment is technically in error 
> ... 
> When an element has an attribute or property value which is not 
> permissible according to this specification 
> ... 
> The document shall be rendered up to, but not including, the first 
> element which has an error. 
> ... 

Also, spec Chapter 6.4  says that:
> An !important declaration within a presentation attribute definition
is an 
> error. 

Our interpretation of these two passages is that the rectangle
fill-parameter is in error and the rectangle should not be rendered,
which is opposite to what the test case expects. Any thoughts on this?
 
Yours,
