Misleading references in the font chapter of SVG tiny 1.2

Hello www-svg,

I think, the font chapter of SVG tiny 1.2 contains some wrong/dead links.

For example the section "17.8.2 The 'font-face' element"
contains several links intended to refer to the CSS2.0 rule
@font-face and some other related features.
However the links go to
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#font-descriptions
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-baseline
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-mathline
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-src
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-unicode-range
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-units-per-em
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-panose-1
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-stemv
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-stemh
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-slope
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-cap-height
http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#descdef-x-height
etc

Obviously the content of this URI was changed
(the CSS2.0 Recommendation was obviously replaced by
the current CSS2.1 CR).
Unfortunately the document now available under this URI
does not provide any information about @font-face etc anymore.

Because the definition of elements and attributes explicitly depend on
the referenced definitions, they are theoretically currently undefined.
I think, such links should go to
http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/REC-CSS2-20080411/fonts.html#font-descriptions
etc and related places within the CSS2.0 recommendation.
Or the CSS2.1 CR document found now under this URI should be changed 
back to the previous content ;o)


Best wishes

Olaf
