The longer I'm looking at this, the more confused I get ...

http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/struct.html#SVGElementWidthAttribute says that if width or height aren't specified, 100% should be used.
However, when I test this (test case attached), there is a difference between referencing an svg with width and height set to 100% and an svg with width and height omitted.
Are all three browsers misinterpreting the specification in a consistent way, or is there a part of the specification I'm missing? (probably the latter)

With kind regards,

Nick Hofstede

Subject: Initial Viewport


I'm trying to figure out what the initial viewport should be of an embedded/referenced svg in the following case:

-        The parent user agent doesn't provide a size for the referenced svg document (only a coordinate where it should be placed)

-        The referenced svg document has width and height on the outermost svg element set to 100%

Browser tests using <img src="test.svg" /> result in creative behavior (the results might be muddied by having to follow CSS rules anyway - the parent user agent I'm thinking of isn't using CSS to specify width/height).

I've been looking at

Kind regards,
Nick Hofstede
