            Bug ID: 25143
           Summary: SVG 1.1 validation: Don't foreignObject tag contents
           Product: Validator
           Version: HEAD
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Parser
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org

Per http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/extend.html, the contents of a foreignObject
element are "assumed to be from a different namespace." They thus should not be
checked against the SVG DTD. Yet, if you attempt to validate a file of the
following structure, every tag inside the foreignObject returns errors, one for
the tag itself and one for each included attribute.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN"
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="1" width="1" version="1.1">
  <foreignObject width="0" height="0">
    <newtag1 options="options">
      <newtag2 options="options" />

Four errors.

No errors. Anything inside a foreignObject block should only be tested for
being valid XML, if at all. 


I tried to put this on the mailing list before filing a bug, to make sure I'm
not misunderstanding something, but it kept saying it was coming from my
private personal email address instead of this public one.
