Erik,

yes, sure, this looks much better and the CVS problem looks like
a good explanation ;o)
I can confirm that I'm satisfied with this fix.



The minor funny thing (I think it was already discussed before)
is, that SVGT1.2 has no elliptical arc command/operation as 
mentioned in the description. 
If this description is intended to be really precise, of course this
still needs to be explained. Ok, everybody can look into
SVG 1.1 to see how this works, therefore it is not really a 
practical problem...
Another way to avoid this could be not to use the words
'operation' and 'command' and just to talk about 'to draw an
elliptical arc (as indicated in example: 09_02.svg)'.
'operation' is not really problematic, but 'command' is, because
this already has a defined meaning in SVG. Because for the
other existing commands in the description 'operation' is used,
this word may cause the impression, that this is a synonym,
what is not possible, because there is no elliptical arc command
available.
