           Summary: Inline SVG fragments test suite please
           Product: SVG
           Version: SVG 1.1 Full
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Concepts
        AssignedTo: schepers@w3.org
        ReportedBy: Lars.Hellstrom@residenset.net
         QAContact: www-svg@w3.org

I'm new at SVG, so it's quite possible I'm missing something, but...

It seems the test suite, as presented at
http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test/20061213/, only contains tests where the
SVG is (i) a stand-alone SVG Web page or (ii) embedded by reference into a Web
page. The Concepts chapter of the SVG 1.1 spec also lists (iii) embedding
inline as a way of including SVG content, so it seems reasonable that this
approach should be tested as well. Especially if browsers might process it

As far as I can tell, Safari (3.2.1) uses a plugin for rendering SVG embedded
by reference, but renders inline SVG itself. Firefox (2.0.0) seems to not
render text in inline SVG although it renders text in referenced SVG, which
also suggests the two ways are handled differently. This latter case was what
prompted me to seek the test suite out in the first case, but it could just as
well be me that has gotten the code wrong. Either way I'd appreciate an
official test covering inline SVG so that I can use it to determine if it is my
fault or Firefox's.
