Patch for Acid3 test 77 (SVGTextContentElement errata)

Hello Ian,

The SVG 1.1 errata item for SVGTextContentElement[1] was moved from draft  
to proposed as per resolution in the June 19 telcon[2].

The errata item in question changes the behaviour for some of the things  
that were tested in test#77 in the acid3 test, more particularly what's  
changed is the getSubStringLength method and on what indata it throws  
exceptions for.

The attached file contains a patch that I believe is correct according to  
the new definition.

It's likely that there will be a publication of the SVG 1.1 errata soon.  
Once that happens, it would be great if the attached patch could be  
included in the acid3 test.

/Erik (relates to ACTION-2010)
