Hi, SVG Community-

Based on feedback from browser vendors, and following some
implementations, the SVG WG is considering changing the way SVG handles
the 'overflow' property on the SVG root.  This has implications on
whether scrollbars would appear for SVGs.  Clearly, sometimes this is
desirable, but other times it may not be.  The SVG WG is seeking author
feedback on this issue, before we make a decision.

If you are interested in this topic, please read this thread:


This will affect how browsers handle SVG 1.1 content, so please do let
us know if this impacts you (positively or negatively).
