I don't have the time to read the other replies in this thread right now, but
here's my take:

For me on Mac, Mozilla nightly and Opera 10.61 show the same thing in all rows
except the second row. Mozilla has the <object> and <embed> entries in this row
wrong - scrollbars should not be displayed because SVG 1.1 says the width/height
of the referenced SVG file is overridden in these cases:


IMO Opera has the <img> entry in this row wrong, since for <img> too the
width/height of the referenced SVG should be overridden by the width/height of
the <img>. I imagine Erik may disagree with me on this one case though.

IMO both browsers otherwise behave as the specs require them too.
