Hello,

When the SVG CSS properties will be available in the CSS validator I cannot
tell exactly due to other things I have to do, but I already built it, it
now needs to be tested and put in CVS. There will be a testing option for
SVG CSS properties as well as for the SVG tiny and SVG basic set of
properties.
