Re: [WICD] comments

Hello Bert.

Thank you for your comments. My brief response to some of your points

What is meant here, is that, scalable child elements (such as SVG  
objects) can always be scaled down enough, to fit fully inside  
whatever destination box (be it a desktop window or the screen of a  
portable device). No scroll bars are ever *needed* to display the  
full object. HTML or text documents, embedded in an HTML document, do  
not have this characteristic. We might need to reword the sentence to  
make this more clear.

Yes, anything that can be done with the <img> element (in regard to  
scalable child elements), can be done as good or better using the  
<object> element. The idea is to make authors use the <object>  
element for this type of content. One advantage of <object> is, to  
allow alternative content to be provided (for non WICD agents).

Yes, we need to say what is the default.

Will be fixed. Thanks.
