Re: More on SVG within HTML pages

Why is it that well-formedness isn't required for SVGs in HTML pages
to begin with?  If it's not well-formed, you could just say it doesn't
display.  In HTML, well-formedness requirements would make it
impossible to use legacy content, but that doesn't apply to SVG.  All
other SVG applications require well-formedness (right?) -- if HTML
doesn't, then it will be impossible to reliably copy SVGs from HTML
pages to other applications, creating interoperability problems.
While requiring well-formedness has its downsides, I can't see how
they outweigh the interop problems this would create.
